Fracking: Natural gas and risks

I watched a documentary on fracking by David Suzuki -The Nature of Things. It is an eye-opener that how dangerous fracking can be to the environment. It causes water pollution, air pollution and produces methane more than CO2 produced by other fossil fuels. Gas can show up in drinking water that if you put a match near your tap water/gas catches fire.

Here is a brief clip:

You can watch full documentary here.

Here is another interesting video:

  1. The UK is getting the benefits of hydrofracking now. http://www.texassharon.com/ is a nexus of information. I try for more general coverage. http://oldephartte.blogspot.ca/2013/08/spills-pastpresent-and-planned.html

  2. Opit, thanks for interesting information and links. Fracking is indeed very dangerous. Some earthquakes in U.S are attributed to fracking because of extensively fractured rock.

    Opit, by the way, are you starting an aggregate of progressive blogs. You may consider to look at this aggregate http://canadianprogressives.ca/ which daily posts the updates from its members.

  3. Opit, I got you wrong. So you don't think that fracking causes all kinds of pollution.

  4. Opit, you're infringing on copy right when you're re-posting blogs by others.
