Completely agree with you Julia. Just to add to what you’re getting at, I’m no geologist… but sending that much fluid & chemicals a mile deep into the earth just screams instability. It’s an earthquake, a sinkhole, a landslide, an avalanche… just waiting to happen.

Fracking has been used over 1,000,000 times since the 1940′s.
there are exactly 0 cases of actual pollution.
Dom is right,he is no geologist and julia writes like someone who just bought a dictionary and is impressed with all the words.
I am really too bored to explain all the facts to the uninformed.It’s like trying to argue with Al Gore or teaching a pig to sing.
Fracking is a safe ,efficient way to extract more hydrocarbons for the benefit of the American people.
Nuff said.

@gary im interested to hear “all the facts”— only way to fix being uninformed is with knowledge, right?

If you think somebody has a misinformed outlook, then you should show them why they are wrong.

You can fix ignorance! (stupidity, though, is immutable)

Fracking is absolutely an environmental hazard! They are misleading us:

Please provide an actual demonstrated case of environmental damage from fracking.
The pretty picture of a waterfall is nice.
Absolutly useless as an example though.
Maybe next time a nice puppy picture will be more pursuasive and I will decide you were right.
