Fracking vs. Mining
By Brianna, Bandril, Raymond, and Coyne
Fracking is the process of drilling into the ground at high pressure in order to "frack" the shale rocks to emit natural gas inside. It takes 400 tankers to transport enough water to supply the site. It takes 1-8 gallons to complete a fracture job. Approximately 40,000 gallons of chemicals to mix in with the water to do one job.
