Protect our water supplies and aquifers by banning fracking. One single Frack uses up between 500,000 and 4 MILLION Gallons of water. A small family barely uses that much water in a lifetime, and these companies use that much water with a single Frack. Then they pump poisonous chemicals into the ground that no one even knows what they contain, leaving communities riddled with illness, cancer, and poisoned wells.
Fracking is a useless tool in our energy toolbox. Wind and solar, possibly used in tandem or conjunction with our current grid, is more sustainable than fracturing the earths surface and core. Environmental hazards exist from fracking - like an influx in earthquakes, releasing methane into the air - and are becoming more common and uncontrollable. Fracking is one of the worst ways to harness truly sustainable and renreable energy. Maybe fossil fuels should be "fossilized".
