People complain about pollution from factories, cars, global warming, and the melting of polar ice caps, yet many people disregard the dangerous that come with fracking. Fracking is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, and/or boreholes to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas. Fracking is causing an epidemic economically and environmentally. Fracking is continuously destroying the earth day by day. From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting.
Hydraulic Fracturing, otherwise known as fracking is the process of injecting large amounts of sand, water, and other chemicals into the shale rocks deep beneath the ground in order to flow natural gas back onto the surface of the well. This process was invented in the early 1900s, and has been controversial ever since. There are two sides to the debate, one being that fracking is known to be horrible for the environment. Fracking has caused families to need to be displaced, and emitted thousands of toxic chemicals into the air causing major public health issues. At the same time, fracking has reduced the reliability on coal, which is known to be horrible for the environment; it has also brought hundreds of thousands of gallons of natural gas
In the smoky mountains there is a lot of bad air pollution because of power plants and industrial emissions are blowing bad air to the park and because of it there is wildlife that is being affected more than it should be. A lot of things are changing from air pollution, climate change, water issues, and foreign invaders that want to take things from the park not knowing if it will affect it or not. National parks are sites that should be protected.
Numerous flames are seething in Western United States devastating things from homes to structures. The states currently being affected are: Oregon, Idaho, Colorado, Washington, Montana, and California. As firefighters are striving to get it under control the flame is spreading quick making it difficult to contain. Climate conditions, for example, warm, the drought, and wind are making this a much troublesome procedure. The out of control fire is bringing on power outages and individuals are being compelled to leave their homes and head to shelters for safety and wellbeing.
What would you say is wrong with Earth? For example maybe it’s global warming, homelessness, unemployment, species going extinct, resources running out or maybe you would say that it’s pollution. Pollution not only affects humans, but also plant, animals, and the environment. Pollution is a huge problem that is both continually becoming worse and is hard to fix. Humans have been creating problems for as long as they have been around and they are still creating them like the “Dust Bowl” of 1935 or the recent smog in Delhi, but all problems have a solution.
The war in Iraq has tremendous results in terms of living conditions, ecology, violence, and human rights. This is what Stephen Lendman exposes in his article. Whether they chose to stay and live in squatter slums, or flee to the neighboring countries, Iraqis are facing bad living conditions, living in poverty and lacking basic services such as sanitation or water. The Golf War has disastrous effects on the environment as well; because of destruction of power and chemical plants, factories, refineries, and water purification facilities, to name but a few, pollution has drastically increase, as well as diseases. Violence has reached a spike and the number of Human rights abuses in Iraq has raised too.
For example, on page 134, it states “Oh the effects of it were real the rising prices, the shortages of everything, the news that so-and-so had been killed in some far away battle.” This means that everyone is affected no matter what. Most farmers need to buy some of their food, so the rising prices make it harder for them to make a living. Many people will lose their jobs and mostly everyone will be hungry all the time. Its even more unfair because these people don’t want to be in the war, but are feeling the effects of it anyways.
More recently developed nuclear weapons prove to not only be more violent than those used during the Dresden attack, but to also be more physically and psychologically destructive. Along with the initial effects of the weapon, which destroys both people and property, deadly radiation from the bomb causes lasting health issues for the survivors, such as leukemia and radiation poisoning (Schull). Furthermore, the evacuation and relocation of those who lost homes and jobs in the area of attack would not only be expensive, but would also have significant negative social repercussions - both of the loss of productivity of the workforce during this time, as well as on the mental health of those forced to abandon their homes and

Furthermore, as high employment rate and poverty sets in, worldwide starvation will eventually affect everyone. Starvation and famines is something that already exist today in many underdeveloped countries. Countries, such as Somalia, are already facing famine because of bad weather, and the lack of fresh water. By adding into the factor of the depletion of cheap oil, a recipe for disaster is brewed. Many developing countries rely on cheap oil to power their machineries for agriculture and industrial developments in order to survive, and to produce income from exports.
Climate change is more serious than we take it. If it continues, everyone will parish. Climate change affects us in many different ways. It causes animal population numbers to decrease, slows down transportation to the north, and causes flooding and the rise of the sea level. Global warming exists, and it is not only affecting the environment.
David Glazer AP Language and Composition Johnson 2/3/16 Analyzing “A Field Philosopher’s Guide To Fracking” In his book A Field Philosopher’s Guide to Fracking, Adam Briggle documents his journey to fight fracking in the small town of Denton, Texas. Recently hired as a professor of philosophy at the University of North Texas, Briggle moves to Denton never having heard of fracking before. Fracking is a type of drilling that increases oil production and effectiveness but, as Briggle would learn, has severe consequences on the community.
