You learn that a company will begin using hydraulic fracking in the county where you live. Do you feel safe or uneasy?
They do fracking in my county. No issues.
Oklahoma has already become earthquake center and it is thought to be due to fracking. It is already within 50 miles of where I live.
We're already earthquake prone.
I live on tidal lands. Not a good idea
There is nothing good about fracking.
We get enough earthquakes as it is. No mas.
They've been fracking around this area all my life. I would be perfectly fine with it.
Why would they do that? Because the ground here just isn't unstable enough already, or because our water is too clean and they want it to suck here too?
Right here on the San Andreas fault? I'd raise so much shit you'd be able to hear me in Alaska!
That I'll actually agree with.
Makes as much sense as putting ten pounds of crap in a one pound bucket.
I'd make it very clear to the county that I'll be attempting to set my water on fire on a regular basis, and if I ever succeed, I'll be suing the city, the county, the state, the company doing the fracking, God, Nature, Hades, the dollar, and Obama.
Hopefully they work their way towards my property and hit the mother load! Bring it on so a lot of folks can get rich!
I don't want earthquakes and flammable water. I'd move
I'm still not clear on why we let this practice continue.
It's interesting that the states that would see the easiest effects have no problem with it.
The new Florida motto: We used to be a state, until the sinkholes took over.
You think that was because of fracking?
Not the current ones. But do you honestly think fracking would help???
The sink holes are due to h2o usage. Not related. Your point is irrelevant.
It's all over here.
Meh. I don't care. But they won't be very successful.
Very uneasy. We have fault lines nearby, and I'd be afraid that cracking could set off the fault.
Yup. Mudslides. Definitely earthquakes. Water contamination. It'd ruin the fish that they just brought back.
