With all of the buzz about fracking recently, I think it’s time we talk about it. What is it and what does it mean?
First of all fracking is the process of extracting natural grass from shale rock layers deep within the earth. It involves drilling deep into the earths crust.
While fairly new, the process has already presented large problems including water and ground pollution.
We need to take a stand and say no to fracking!
Keep NC frack free!
It’s good to see that we are finally finding ways to use technology to help solve some of the world’s water quality issues. Let’s hope that this will improve the ability to quickly recognize and repair water well problems in rural areas. With these new developments we are definitely taking a step in the right direction.
The killer soup of microplastic threatens to alter the ocean’s natural environment.
The vast swirl of plastic waste floating in the North Pacific has increased 100-fold over the last 40 years, according to a research paper published Wednesday.
And scientists warned the killer soup of microplastic — particles smaller than five millimeters (one inch) — threatened to alter the open ocean’s natural environment.
Something needs to be done about this. Now.
