I hate fracking – Hydraulic Fracturing – the method used to extract natural gas from shale deposits. I found this excellent article and suggest you have a read.
The following photo is from that article and shows the extent this technology is being used in Wyoming to extract gas, but also destroy the environment, consume massive quantities of water and pollute groundwater resources.
We need to stop fracking before we run out of water and stop the obsession we have with fossil fuels. Read this excellent article for more information.
Tony Abbott sounds an awful lot like certain US politicians.
Oh, Australia, I’m sorry you couldn’t learn from the US’ mistake. Have fun with your prejudiced, science denying leader – I hope the damage isn’t too bad.
