and America's never ending thirst for dirty energy
Just when you think America is done with coal aka fossil fuels, the US moves onto a mass fracking project. Why?
How's it done?
What's wrong with fracking?
This can be seen here through infrared video cameras that were specially designed for this purpose:
In the next 20 years, methane will contribute 44 percent of the greenhouse gas load produced by the U.S. 17 percent will come from all natural gas operations.
Some more problems that come along with fracking....
Let's get fracking. Or should we? by CambridgeJBS
Fracking is mostly in the United States as of now.
Why we should HALT fracking sites ASAP:
Why should companies be exempt from the law? What makes the oil and gas industry so important that they are allowed to do whatever they want? Is it because we need gas and oil for society to carry on? That is a redundant reason as gas and oil is a fuel of the past.
Green energy should be the main focus for the future. The government allowing the crooked oil/gas industry to escape the law only holds us back from environmental efforts that should be prioritized.
We cannot have an economy without the environment. How can we prioritize money over out planet when without the planet there would be no money? The government needs to get their act together and halt fracking. The money these people get from cutting laws out and sucking all the natural gas is temporary.
Let's not push the limit. STOP FRACKING.
