Fracking Stories on Indymedia
With Fracking you drill down into the rock in all directions and using high powered water pressure mixed with sand an a cocktail of dangerous poisonous chemicals the rock is shattered and the trapped gas released. This requires vast amounts of energy, piping and water. It literally wrecks the land. In Canada and the USA farmers have been wiped out because all their animals died from the poisons. What will happen in this corrupt country is that our government and their officials will smooth talk everything, give the okay and allow rampant greed to take over. Then when it all goes bust, we the people and thousands of farmers will be left with severely damaged land. It could even wipe out farming. It will certainly destroy our fishing and tourism. The fracking boom could be here and gone in less than 10 years and a small bunch of people will make off with the profits. However for the hundreds of thousands of people affected in the targeted areas the costs will be immense. You have been warned. This will be like the property boom except this time, your very land and means to survive will be destroyed.
See this illustration of how it works.
