The Trouble with Fracking!

The actual fracking is arguably safe, its the rest of the process . . . From bad drill casings to bad law – they are randomly poisoning vast tracts so that even though relatively small issue on a percentage basis it sows doubt on water quality throughout vast regions and creates ‘time bombs’ where buried holding pools could fail long after their locations are forgotten so that the source of the damage to drinking water systems is unknown!  The article in the link below provides pretty thorough coverage of the overall issue.
