People all around the world are taking action against fracking (or hydraulic fractioning) today. By now, you’ve probably seen the scary water photos (that the government, of course, assures us are harmless), heard the horror stories, and become aware of how dangerous fracking can be. From ground water contamination to air pollution, flowback to spills, fracking presents a danger to humans as well as our environment and wildlife. So why is it still happening?
Because it’s profitable, of course. Isn’t that always the answer?
