But the health and environmental risks heavily outweigh the pros. They pump a water mixture into the wells which includes carcinogens which could seep into vital water sources also the water alone that they pump into the ground alone wastes to much and water being the most precious resource. on the planet we should conserve it and not waste it on a less valuable resource to our sustainability. There has also been evidence of it causing small earth tremors (earthquakes) which could potentially cause millions of dollars in property damage which could hurt the economy. But with that in mind i think that other methods of getting natural gas are way more detrimental to the environment than fracking so i would rather that then fracking.
The booms and skimmers, though, tended to get clogged by the thick oil. Chemical cleanup was also given a trial run by the U.S. Coast Guard. However, the current of the water was not enough to evenly distribute the dispersants that were supposed to break down the oil and it only added to the amount of pollutants in the Sound (EPA). It is found in recent studies that on select beaches in the sound are still polluted by large amounts of remaining oil deposits (Liszka 1-30). In the end, the Exxon Valdez oil spill was an expensive disastrous accident that continues to affect the people, company, and environment.
As the world’s superpower, America has an obligation to lead the world in terms of ideas. Unfortunately, our status as an exceptional nation is under threat, thanks to trigger warnings. In order to preserve our character, we must rid ourselves of trigger warnings altogether. To someone unfamiliar with the issue at hand, the notion that America is somehow under threat because of a trigger warning may come across as outlandish. However, a question must be raised: What happens to us as a society when we become too fearful of ideas?
The potential economical and cleaner energy growth is what drives you to use unsafe, and poorly regulated growth, which is fracking. To get the resources beneath the earth is not the problem or blocking the resources that makes America less dependable form foreign oil. Using hydraulic method to bring natural gas is not a safe practices. Hydraulic Fracturing is the moderately new procedure of gas from the earth’s floor. It is costly and dangerous, however there 's a chance to increase mass measures of vitality that could offer America some assistance with becoming substantially more vitality free.
I feel that we are much better off drilling our own oil, rather than relying on other countries for it.. I wanted to do my research paper on this topic in particular because I want to show that I believe our country could be a more efficient, more economically advanced, and far more self-sufficient if we were to drill our own oil instead of leaning on other countries for that
If America has the means to assist other less fortunate human beings than America should, as it is the right thing to do morally. Yes, there are several other factors that are involved in this situation but even though it would be a burden to some people we would be helping people to live better lives, safely in their homeland. Other factors must also be considered, as if aid is given to dictatorial countries under the pretense of humanitarian aid and these dictators use the money to further their own corrupt regimes, then that is not a good use of money that is supposed to be going to the starving and homeless. These factors, though important, do not outshine the fact that if aid was not to be given from this moment forward, millions would suffer. There are far more benefits to giving aid and regulating what the country spends the money on.
The first pro of fracking is that it is an alternative source of easily accessible fuel. The plentiful supply of oil and gas may not seem great today due to air and water pollution, but there will again be a time where resources will be scarce, but with fracking there won’t be another time. If oil drilling and fracking are both continued there won’t be another fuel shortage in an estimated 100 years in the US. Not only are oil shortage avoided but a country’s dependency on foreign oil will decrease and oil exports across America will decrease. Another pro for fracking is the reduction of surface toxicity.
Eliminating the plastic bottle will protect humans against these toxic chemicals. Tap water has substantial evidence to support it. Tap water is less susceptible to the effects of toxic chemicals than bottled water and overall superior to bottled water. Drinking tap water instead of bottled water has many environmental advantages. Safety is the principle concern when debating this topic, especially when people think about their families’ well-being.
Although it has a possibility of harming the environment, fracking is great for the economy and is environmentally better than other resources such as coal mining. Not all people believe that the benefits fracking has overweigh the environmental effects. Many want fracking to end all together, but with the way things are looking right now hydraulic fracturing will continue for a long
Even if it is “wrong” to create life in a lab, religious people and people who are against Therapeutic cloning need to see the benefits of it. Overall, therapeutic cloning should be funded in the United States. It can be very beneficial if we use it to our advantage. This can resolve issues for people who lost limbs in combat or repair a spine. It would make the lives of many Americans much
