Fracking, A Vicious Crime


Saturday rerun from 2013-05-06

Make no mistake about it. Fracking (Hydraulic Fracturing) is a crime. Calling it legal doesn’t make it less of a crime.

Fracking murders people and nature. It destroys vast supplies of water and contaminates the air with carcinogens and other toxins killing lakes, rivers, forests, bugs, birds and beasts. It ravages ancient strata of the earth and pours tons of harmful chemicals into the ground and the atmosphere. People? It steals their health, infects them with pain, destroys their homes, devastates their dreams and plunders their future.

It’s war! Like all war it is an enterprise of conquest. The frackers (corporate managers blessed by their political whores) invade an area and wreak havoc on everyone and everything within the territory of their invasion – plus damaging nearby towns and cities. They pump tons and tons and tons of highly chemicalized water deep into the earth at high pressure to break up (frack) rock formations and extract the gas that flows from the cracks.

Some of the hundreds of chemicals used in the fracking-prepared water are lead, uranium, mercury, ethylene glycol, radium, methanol, hydrochloric acid and formaldehyde. There are 500 000 active gas wells in the US alone using 8 million gallons of water and 40 000 gallons of chemicals per well. Each well can be fracked 18 times. The 1000s of trucks caravaning water, chemicals and supplies back and forth from the fracking sites constitute an environmental hazard by themselves.

Those speaking for fracking will tell you that the gas they extract is a much cleaner form of energy than oil. Tell them to go frack themselves. It’s a vulgarly polluting and extremely slimy operation to make dirty money for a handful of filthy rich people diseased with greed.

    The people’s representatives everywhere around the globe aught to read your piece; nails the toxic greedy gluttons via mirroring their heinous energy reality’s sources. Murderers; essentially; and highly unnecessary.
