2013: Energy issues on front burner

2013: Energy issues on front burner | Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) | Scoop.it
Sheril Kirshenbaum says natural gas fracking, climate change and renewables are likely to drive discussions of energy in the new year
Davis Charette's insight:

The energy that we get from fracking is good, but is it worth it, affecting the people and envroment around them. Also the public opions on people thinking that fracking is good has droped and more and more debates have been  comming up and, it is expected to rise.

As climate warms, Arctic spawns massive ice islands

As climate warms, Arctic spawns massive ice islands | Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) | Scoop.it
Evidence shows ice shelves and glaciers around the Arctic are melting faster than ever, with consequences likely to be felt worldwide.
Davis Charette's insight:

The warming of the climate has been breaking apart ice glaciers and casting off "ice islands" that harm fishing and oil refineries. The warming also has been melting land ice faster and faster each year, and as that happens, less freezes back.

New Zealand HeraldTodd Energy opens its books on fracking on NZ, says it's safesharechatTodd Energy has been involved in hydraulic fracturing on 26 occasions in New Zealand and says the controversial process, known colloquially as fracking, is safe...

 

In this post about fracking, this company states that fracking is an easy, safe way to get natural gas from shale. On top of that this company also decides to downplay the number of toxic chemicals in the water mixture by saing the water is 99%-97% of the mixture. They said that they even have non harmful mixtures to use insted of the toxic versions. The also say that fracking is an advanced, safe method for getting natural gas out of the ground.

Light Your Water On Fire from Gas Drilling, Fracking

A video by Scott Cannon youtube Truthland is a fraud. People can light their taps on fire because of gas drilling. This is one of those cases. In fact, one of the companies that produced Truthland, Chesapeake Energy, was responsible for this mess.

 

                The water, sand, and chemical make up of the mixture pumped into the hole down to a special layer of rock, called shale that contains natrural gas. There however is a large controversy between the drilling companies that dont want to say what is in the mix because it is a guarded "secret", and the people that have had many defects, such as blindness, loss of hearing, loss of smell, and other illnesses. In the town of truthland, the mixture that is used to hold open the fractures is leaching into the water supplies for the town causeing a major increase of methane and hazardous chemicals in the water.

2012 is 10th warmest for world since 1880

2012 is 10th warmest for world since 1880 | Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) | Scoop.it
The year of 2012 was declared the globe's 10th warmest since recordkeeping began in 1880 and the warmest ever for the Lower 48 U.S. states.
Davis Charette's insight:

In the united states, the lower 48 states has been at a 3.2 degree increase which is not good, and this year broke a record, it was among the 14 warmest of 2012. This warmth, has made it dogsleading almost impossable, races are canseled for no snow and, bad trail conditions. Also farming has taken a hit, and food prices will increase this year due to the bad harvests

Ohio Voters Pass Two Community Bills of Rights Banning Fracking-Related Activity « EcoWatch: Uniting the Voice of the Grassroots Environmental Movement

Ohio Voters Pass Two Community Bills of Rights Banning Fracking-Related Activity « EcoWatch: Uniting the Voice of the Grassroots Environmental Movement | Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) | Scoop.it
RT @YouthForClimate: RT @frackaction: In two Ohio towns, voters overwhelmingly said NO WAY to #fracking!

 

This post was very good in my opinion because it showed the faces of both parties, the people and the drilling co. The state goverment is mixed in feeling when it comes to baning drilling there. The people have successfuly managed to put up a fight to ban the drilling. Some city officials say that they dont hve a chice in regulating drilling so the ban shouldent be put in effect because the law. But others say tha they should have a say in what happens in their backyard so the ban should be in effect.

The value of fracking | Kiwiblog

The value of fracking | Kiwiblog | Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) | Scoop.it
Stuff reports: New Zealand's multibillion-dollar energy industry will become uneconomic if fracking is banned from drilling operations, an industry report.

 

Fracking is really a good thing , not a bad thing. Appently due to the fact that it earns the goverment money and, makes compines that frack prosper in reguards to cash flow. Another thing they bring up is it cuts down on greenhouse gas emitions. If fracking was to stop then investers would leave becaue there would be no money coming in anymore and the goverment would gain nothing but increased costs for gas and oil.
