Light Your Water On Fire from Gas Drilling, Fracking

allen kravetz's insight:
This is a prime example of what fracking can do. The water used during the process can spread all through the ground. The chemicals used are a huge risk to nature and everything around it.

In this video it shows a house located near a drilling site. The chemicals from drilling site have spread all over the place. The families water well has been contaminated with methane gas causing it to become very flammable as well as un drinkable. As you can see this is very unsafe for the family living there and other people near them.

Fracking criticised over pollution and health risks - Republic of Ireland, Local & National - Belfasttelegraph.co.uk

Fracking, has come under intense scrutiny internationally due to growing
concerns about health and environmental pollution. award-winning 2009 film, 'Gasland', exposed the health ill-effects suffered by many US residents living near gas wells, the destruction of landscape, and instances of water, soil and air pollution.

Many of the harmful effects associated with fracking are caused by the toxic make-up of the frack fluid, which can contaminate groundwater.

A New York times investigation found water supplies with high rates of radioactivity due to the water being sent to treatment plants not made to deal with it. The film "Gasland" exposed many negative effects people living near gas wells suffer, landscape being destroyed and water, soil and air pollution.

its sickening to see what greed leads too, the poisoning of people.

New York's department of health is conducting assessments on what the health risks are that go with fracking. The government usually relies on the safety of gas drilling but fracking has some potential dangers with it. The goal of the health assessment is that it is done comprehensively, complete and transparent.

Fracking has four mane physical dangers with it. The first is radioactive waste water being released during the drilling process. Then radon exposure which is the leading cause of lung cancer being released into peoples homes and businesses. Smog from all the machinery is another big risk. Finally chemicals can be released into drinking water.

There are five main obstacles to protect your health from fracking. Higher incidences of health risks become more evident over time. Also common medicine doesn't recognize the threats from chemical exposure over time. Conflicts of interest are interfering with scientific findings and information is being withheld. Also most data about fracking being collected is not very accurate. Finally increased health care costs on fracking related health risks can prevent you from getting treated.

Led by Dr. David O. Carpenter, Director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany’s School of Public Health, a number of health experts launched a new initiative, Concerned Health Professionals of New York, to outline the health risks of fracking and to renew their call for an independent, comprehensive Health Impact Assessment. The health experts in Albany spoke on behalf of the broad medical and scientific community in New York State, where hundreds of medical professionals and scientists have been outspoken about concerns that fracking poses a threat to public health.

will greed listen? Pretty sure they will continue without considering the environmental and health damage.
