The evidence is overwhelming that Fracking taints ground water - not to mention how much fresh water the hydraulic fracking process uses!
Sat, 08 Feb 2014 20:34:03 -0600
Really? What evidence? How can fracking fluids defy gravity and 1000feet of impermeable rock to migrate UPWARD? Drilling fluids can and are easily contained, treated and disposed. There may be a rarev
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 05:15:18 -0600
I know people who worked with a state agency that conducted environmental impact studies which confirmed the contamination.
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 20:53:50 -0600
Fracking is so far beyond sane that explaining why it's ruinously bad should be unnecessary
Sun, 16 Feb 2014 10:44:15 -0600
Why is it bad? Scientific reason? Fracking with horizontal drilling is much safer than old drilling methods.
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 05:18:25 -0600
oil companies will put their profits above nearby residents health. Water is too precious to waste on non renewable energy.
Thu, 06 Mar 2014 19:04:42 -0600
Because Im sick of those at the top making a killing out of destroying our people and our planet whilst pretending to be green .We Human Beings like our water clean and our air unpolluted not a lot to
Fri, 28 Feb 2014 07:45:46 -0600
Fracking is poisoning life.
Tue, 25 Feb 2014 11:54:43 -0600
Birth defects from flammable water supplies due to fracking.
Sun, 23 Feb 2014 12:09:10 -0600
Poison our drinking water, in orer to sell it back to us clean.
Sun, 23 Feb 2014 03:00:45 -0600
Fracking leaves TOXIC chemicals in its wake thereby contaminating the ground water.
Fri, 21 Feb 2014 12:00:02 -0600
I don't want gas coming out when I turn my water tap on!! It make the water no good.
Wed, 19 Feb 2014 06:44:47 -0600
LOL, is that what you think is going to happen?
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 06:52:19 -0600
Geological surveys and toxicology tests have proven, with very little doubt, that fracture drilling DOES cause contamination to water supplies/tables. Plus the chemicals used remain in the surrounding soil for decades!
Sat, 03 Jan 2015 06:16:03 -0600
fracking is a political tool to lower property values or force owners to move out at a huge loss in their property's value.
Thu, 01 Jan 2015 18:07:15 -0600
Britain's f*ked up enough, without adding 'fracking' to the feckin list.
Sun, 12 Oct 2014 09:57:55 -0500
The chemicals involved would be catastrophic if it got into the water supply
Mon, 22 Sep 2014 09:42:18 -0500
fracking destroys everything
Sat, 20 Sep 2014 20:05:57 -0500
Because it Will Do More Harm than Good! Enough said!
Sat, 20 Sep 2014 05:09:05 -0500
EARTHQUAKES ALL OVER THE WORLD????
Wed, 17 Sep 2014 17:57:17 -0500
Fracking is killing the water tables
Mon, 02 Jun 2014 23:39:12 -0500
We've got to start putting emphasis into renewable energy.
Sun, 04 May 2014 18:29:10 -0500
Without fresh water we all die, either that or go cannibal on the oil execs which doesn't sound too tasty.
Thu, 01 May 2014 13:44:52 -0500
Because it is destructive and polluting.
Mon, 07 Apr 2014 05:35:56 -0500
Because any one with any common sense will realise that Fracking is dangerous to our health
Sun, 06 Apr 2014 14:25:38 -0500
because this is the side with no ulterior motive
Sun, 06 Apr 2014 11:27:41 -0500
fracking often does pollute ground water and leaves toxic residues both above and below ground
Sat, 05 Apr 2014 16:17:00 -0500
b/c our water is precious! Far more so than LNG!!
Fri, 04 Apr 2014 00:15:38 -0500
because it interferes with the planet. It uses far too much water, which is then unusable, for anything!
Mon, 31 Mar 2014 02:31:19 -0500
But I have seen news reports from where people live and it pollutes the water and land. And the scientist the gov and corporate companies who frack get them to lie when it is obvious it is dangerous.

Defense of all LIFE!
Sun, 23 Mar 2014 19:53:29 -0500
I want to be able to continue to have water at a reasonable price and unpolluted, I don't want to live under constant earthquakes or have all our farmland poisoned. Bit of a no-brainer once you look.
Fri, 21 Mar 2014 03:43:25 -0500
Wed, 12 Mar 2014 12:05:51 -0500
Fracking is not efficient of useful
Tue, 04 Mar 2014 16:53:49 -0600
Because all the water north of me is toxic from fracking so my city water will be gone.
Tue, 04 Mar 2014 16:17:17 -0600
Because they are not telling us the truth, and we need to protect the earth not kill it.
Tue, 04 Mar 2014 11:03:29 -0600
see its awful results in USA
Sun, 02 Mar 2014 15:09:08 -0600
its dirty. dirty politics, dirty money, dirty ethics and kills
Fri, 28 Feb 2014 17:11:48 -0600
Because safe, clean water is our most valuable resource. Insurance companies refuse to insure against fracking, what do they know that we don't?
Fri, 28 Feb 2014 08:14:52 -0600
Tue, 25 Feb 2014 22:40:44 -0600
I see a lot of people shilling for the industry in here - making pseudo-scientific claims that 'fracking is safe' and that there is "no risk to water tables". When you see these people, you should know that they are stakeholders (or worse) shareholders, whose job it is to create a fake consensus on Fracking.
Mon, 24 Feb 2014 08:19:16 -0600
Sadly, some people think its OK to put money ahead of lives and health of future generations.
Mon, 24 Feb 2014 08:20:31 -0600
Our planet has all the power we need ready to be harnessed by humans, without digging up the planet and poisoning the land!
Mon, 24 Feb 2014 06:45:02 -0600
cos it will turn the uk into a prison eventualy poisoned water n soil = no life
Sun, 23 Feb 2014 12:55:22 -0600
They are raping the land. To the corporations its all about the money and the government in run by them!
Wed, 19 Feb 2014 22:58:36 -0600
Raping the land? The land is on the surface, drilling is below. Idiocy.
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 05:16:04 -0600
I've studied the research.
Wed, 19 Feb 2014 19:47:52 -0600
Obviously not any scientific reports or evidence. This is a safe method of obtaining clean fuel, but the left-wing is poisoning you with lies. Get the real facts.
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 06:51:11 -0600
I Know an Expert on the Practice!!
Wed, 19 Feb 2014 18:55:45 -0600
I am an expert on the process, so?
It's much safer than the old vertical drilling methods!
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 05:17:13 -0600
I am a water well driller. I understand the techniques of drilling and fracking. Just the fact that fracking occurs over 1000 feet BELOW an aquifer with impermeable rock between (and gravity) ensures
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 04:44:41 -0600
No proof of damage
Wed, 19 Feb 2014 18:59:09 -0600
Because fracking takes place well below the water table. The vertical bore drilling need only be done in established professional fashion to be more than adequate.
Wed, 19 Feb 2014 13:08:08 -0600
We need Energy not lies
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 17:36:34 -0600
Energy independence is vital
Wed, 17 Sep 2014 09:45:51 -0500
It is damaging to the environment
Mon, 07 Apr 2014 15:47:58 -0500
Unleash our economy, why would send one more soldier overseas to lose their lives over the hysteria of extreme environmentalist? FAKE AGENDA
Mon, 24 Feb 2014 13:03:06 -0600
Fracking is safe and if used we could support our own countries energy needs.
Sat, 22 Feb 2014 15:29:09 -0600
Person knowledge, education, and professional knowledge.

"The financial system smells so fishy that curdled milk is more palatable." Now that's cheesy.
