Stop Fracking.....NOW!!!!

Fracking is the process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at rock with teeny tiny cracks sometimes less than a mm apart to release the gas inside. Water, sand and chemicals are injected into the rock at high pressure which allows the cracks to open up a lot more so the gas can escape to the head of the well. The process is carried out by drilling horizontally to the rocky layer VERY deep down.
Fracking allows drilling to access difficult-to-reach amounts of oil and gas. It is thought to have gas security to the US and Canada for about 100 years, and has opened a way to generate electricity at half the CO2 emissions of coal.
People suggest fracking of shale gas could add to the UK's future energy needs. A report by the Energy and Climate Change Committee in April said shale gas in the UK may help to secure energy supplies ….. BUT AT WHAT COST?!?!?!?!?!?   
  Think about it, people fracking under your house, 1.your house could SINK. 2. THE NOISE! 3. It would feel like a little earthquake!    

Up to 600 chemicals are used in fracking fluid. Some of these chemicals are known carcinogens (any of a number of agents that can cause cancer in people)

·         LEAD (Lead is devastating to the human body, inhibiting oxygen and calcium transport and altering nerve transmission in the brain)
·         URANIUM (Too much uranium can lead to increased cancer risk, liver damage, or both)
·         MERCURY (Mercury and its compounds are highly toxic things for humans a particular health hazard because it is easily taken up into the body through the stomach) 
·         HYDROCHLORIC ACID (This can turn the human body to a liquid state within a matter of hours!)
·         FORMALDEHYDE (Formalin belongs to that rare group of poisons which are capable of death suddenly when swallowed!)
·         ETHYLENE GLYCOL(Ethylene glycol has been shown to be toxic to humans and is also toxic to pets such as cats and dogs)
·         RADIUM (naturally radioactive, and can get into the water supply and can accumulate in the bones!L )
·         METHANOL (toxic to humans, high levels can cause severe toxicity and even… DEATH!!!)

The companies are arguing that there is only 0.5% to 2% of chemicals used in each lot of fracking fluid but when MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of GALLONS are being used…… yeah, bad!!!! So fracking = x_x (DEATH!) but how can we even trust the companies, it could be from 10% to 75% we don’t know!

 So yeah, this is few examples of what are going into the soil, working its way up into plants like grass which cows, sheep even goats will graze on… we eat these (sorry if you’re a vegie L )!!!!!! These will even go into veg in the ground….. WE EAT VEG!
 And all these chemicals GO INTO OUR BODY AND PROBABLY KILL US, but that’s no big deal EVERYBODY LIKES TO DIE DON’T THEY? Well it’s starting to seem like it, all the different ways to naturally die but killing ourselves, WOW!!!! Soo yeah frackings good isn't it… NO!!!!
There is also the issue of the disturbance caused by the plants. They are very noisy, they operate 24 hours a day and there is lots of light. So species that are very sensitive to disturbance can be affected, such as bats and some species of birds that migrate, hedgehogs (which are near enough extinct as it is!), badgers and a lot more!    
 I, for one, want this to stop and I bet others will too! This is just WRONG! Somebody needs to get through to the government and tell them straight off TO STOP FRACKING!!These chemicals could well already of worked their way up into everyday food and we won’t know anything until it’s too late, creepy a bit isn't it?
 Now come one anyone who thinks this a good idea needs to research about this. Sure don’t trust me and my facts….. LOOK IT UP! Everybody’s open to their own opinions but this could result of death of many living this from plants to us!!!
