A directory of information about hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, and its ecological impact on the planet, poisoning water and air.

This has to be one of the most astonishing instances of high-level criminality in undoing laws protecting air and water supplies, to allow the development of fracking, which destroys the water supplies.

While the burning of natural gas might be a relatively "clean" compared to other fossil fuels, the method of "fracking" to extract it turns it into the worst offender when it comes to polluting the planet and irreversibly destroying the water supplies of the planet.

'As a result, no longer should we view natural gas as "clean." It has become the "most filthy" of all energy supplies.'

Dick Cheney was at the lead in changing the laws to allow for unbridled fracking operations in the U.S.

This criminality must be stopped. This is horrific beyond measure.

People, animals and the ecosystem are dying because of this obscene practice that must stop immediately. Those involved in perpetrating it must be brought to justice.

Last night's record-setting earthquake is the latest hit. How much will we let these criminals get away with? (PESN and BeforeItsNews November 6, 2011)

The corporations say there is nothing wrong with fracking, and the water in surrounding, pre-existing wells is safe but they won't drink samples of water from effected wells, which include pretty much all the wells near such operations. Cheney is at the head of the criminality. This is one of the most disturbing things imaginable. (YouTube January 23, 2012)

People are suspecting that to be causing it." A total of 700 earthquakes have occurred in the region in the last six months. Drillers free up the gas by using hydraulic fracturing or 'fracking' — injecting pressurized water to create fractures deep in the ground. (Daily Mail UK February 17, 2011)
