Fracking For Natural Gas is turning the beautiful america into a toxic hell!
On this map you can retrieve two types of information: the US rivers in blue and the main US fracking areas superimposed in red. This map is from the documentary Gasland.
There is just one thing I would say about this terrifying map: Be careful if you live in a red area, your tap watermay be contaminated and poisoned by the chemicals and other toxic substances used for fracking and described in the following report: Chemicals Used In Hydraulic Fracturing.
Just to clarify, NOT ALL OF THESE RED AREAS ARE CONTAMINATED, but they have a higher risk of contamination due to a high concentration of fracking activity. I am concerned about the impact that fracking has on water. But as someone already wrote me in an e-mail: ‘it’s complete hyperbole to claim that all people who live in a red area on this map will jeopardize their health if they drink their tap water.‘ If you live in one of these areas, you should of course be concerned. Look at your city’s water quality or test your water yourself.
This is the Gasland trailer.
The following video gives you an idea of other problems encountered during fracking operations.
If you accept fracking in other countries, then you will encounter the same problems. Stop fracking! Fight against fracking! Do not think about money! Think about our next generations and about your health!
