Fracking is a very bad idea, there are already numerous claims into Fracking chemical spills killing large populations of animals and contaminating drinking water. yet nothing has been done about it, containment how do you contain something that is generically unpredictable,
W hy has the whole world gone crazy thinking they can just take whatever they want from the earth with no-consequences to the environment and no repercussions into the harm it is causing.
I also wouldn’t be surprised if the whole invasion of Syria is a cover for them to push Fracking whilst people are pre-occupied with the Syrian conflict

I think the business ceo's deserve to eat the fruit of their work. Poison food, water, and air.
