Fracking Hell

Fracking

Fracking injects toxic fluid (water mixed with sand and chemicals) at a high pressure to fracture shale rocks and access oil and natural gas. Injected pollution of 600 chemicals that include lead, uranium, mercury, ethylene glycol, radium, methanol, hydrochloric acid and formaldehyde seeps into groundwater. This has led to extraordinary footage of water from taps bursting into flames and horrific levels of pollution. 

Each fracking operation involves between one and eight million gallons of water that can never be used again because of its extreme chemical content. 

The website dangersoffracking.com reports the following: 500,000 active gas wells in the United States x 8 million gallons of water per fracking x 18 times that a well can be fracked = 72 trillion gallons of water and 360 billion gallons of chemicals required for current gas wells in the United States and this is happening worldwide.
