- Fracking threatens the climate because too many greenhouse gas emissions result from the practice.
- The process threatens the world’s supply of freshwater so that there may eventually be less potable water available for human consumption.
- Fracking has created a controversy in the water industry with water companies selling water to the oil and gas industry. This commodification of water treats it as an industrial product rather than a natural resource that everyone has free use of.
- Fracking negatively impacts society’s overall health and wellness with negative affects including increased cancer risk and higher rates of birth defects.
