Stop Fracking The Earth Up
In the fracking process, millions of gallons of water mixed with sand and chemicals are injected into the earth. This creates many problems for the animals living near the wells as their ecosystem is destroyed. The water which the animals drink from is also contaminated. Why do do fracking companies use such expensive methods to extract natural guys? The simple answer is that because the price of oil is high, expensive extraction techniques make it worthwhile. Oil companies may be making profits but it is always the poor and individuals that suffer.
I talked to Toronto Vaughan Landscaping, a landscaping expert in Toronto who has helped clean up fracking sites before. He stated,”Fracking is a huge problem in North America. It is important for people to raise awareness and encourage others to protest against other fracking drill sites from being built.” He also stated that,” Once the toxins enter the ground, they are never coming back out. Over the years these toxins will seep into our ground water and will appear in our drinking water; what will we then do?” I asked him about the landscaping work required to clean up a fracking site. He told me that it takes a lot of work and it is similar to that of cleaning up a gas station. All the dirt must be removed and environmental scientists must come in and test the soil.
On the way back to my home I thought for a moment about how cancer rates have gone up. Maybe this has to do with the toxins in our water? We will never know until scientists get the funding needed to do a study. Below is the link of the company we have talked to.
