This specifically goes against the Doctrine of Public Trust, a concept made to protect waters of the public. Fracking industries are spoiling the people 's water with chemicals unsafe to ingest or wash with/in. These chemicals are too dangerous to outweigh the positive benefits. Another environmental issue fracking causes is man made earthquakes happening only after fracking sites are set up. It was found out that the disposal wells pumped with used fracking chemical water are creating these man-made earthquakes.
Water and sand are inserted into the shale formations at high pressures in order to make cracks in the shale that helps recover natural gases from below the Earth’s surface. Despite the fact that it does some benefit for the economy, fracking should be abolished as it causes health risks due to pollution, over consumes resources, and causes controversy over both human and animal habitats. Fracking causes pollution, and in this manner
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.
While the quality of water is important for many individuals, wasting water in the matter they do can seem like a major crime. The Congressional Digest also says that fracking is a huge waste of water, and is one of the biggest wastes of water around. Millions of gallons of water are dumped into the soil to pop up these natural gases, and its no longer useful once it comes back. In fact the water that goes down into these holes, does come back up, however once it comes back up with the gas and oil, it is no longer the water we thought it was. The “flow back” or water that returns to the surface, does not always come back up,“…less than 30 percent to more than 70 percent of the original fracture fluid volume” is brought back up, and is rendered unusable (Congressional Digest).
5. The US Coast Guard failed to provide a proper vessel tracking system. The Impact of the incident on the environment Although the Exxon Valdez oil spill does not rank highly as the largest oil spill, the impact on the environment proved to be the most disastrous. The location of the spill inside a contained body of water rather than in the open ocean resulted in the oil being sequestered causing weathering by wave action, light and bacteria to be inhibited, the seasonal timing and geographical location also influenced the severity of the impact. Effects of the spill are still evident twenty-seven years after it occurred.
This method of gas extraction has never previously been used on such a wide scale as its being used now. In the reading “Fracking: Pro and Con” by Gail Bambrick we are able to analyze both the pros and cons of fracking as discussed by Bruce Everett and John Rumpler respectively. Health issue is the primary concern of fracking. Due to the emission of harmful gases like benzene the area where fracking is done is becoming cancer cluster areas. Injecting large amount of water into the earth’s layer is not without danger, media, and journals have highlighted the potential risk factors due to fracking.
The company claims that this will be more environmentally friendly and it will lower costs. This upset the tribe because the bulldozers that are being used to build the pipeline are ruining the tribes sacred burial grounds, prayer sites, and some culturally significant artifacts, as well
This source would help to prove that the information that the supporting side is using is not credible. In an article written by Ellen Powell Staff titled, “What does the Dakota Access Pipeline pause mean for the oil industry?”, the effect a halt on the DAPL has on the entire oil industry is discussed. The article quotes Brigham McCown, an industry consultant, who says, “We don’t know what the implications are, other than that it’s going to have a huge chilling
First, people are becoming afraid of fracking. This has occurred because fracking was done in the area, but soon after everyone within the area became ill after drinking the water. Another negative about fracking is the companies are reluctant to tell what the exact chemicals are used. I found this suspicious because individuals deserve to know what is happened under and/or around their land. The final negative about fracking is the amount of methane found in water that was around an area where fracking was taking place.
India’s economy was not doing well during imperialism. They had to close down many of their industries, and stopped their growth. The British had taken over their industries, and were making a lot more of a profit than the Indians were. This also led to a drop of unemployment and poverty for the Indians, while they already had too many unemployed
While Hillary Clinton’s proposal would be a huge step forward in modernizing America’s energy infrastructure, her refusal to acknowledge a carbon tax is unsettling if one references her background and affiliations as Secretary of State. One of the most controversial issues posed by Hillary Clinton is the Keystone XL scandal. Keystone XL pipeline project is the extension of TransCanada 's Keystone pipeline, that would have transported 830,000 barrels of dirty oil from Canada to refineries in Texas. The project sparked enormous environmental controversy due to various factors. Citizens who live in the path of the pipeline are experiencing eminent domain lawsuits being brought against them where TransCanada is forcefully confiscating land from homeowner and farmers.
Some of the issues surrounding the shale are: drilling and pipelining can be harmful for the water in the area, wildlife in the area will leave, and legal issues such as land leasing for gas development and possible property damage. ⦁ The map of the Marcellus Shale. ⦁ To penetrate more fracture the use horizontal drilling. Doing so they are capable of drilling millions of cubic feet of gas. ⦁ Issues in the environment
