FRACCIDENTS: Contrary to the oil & gas industry's claim that fracking is harmless and safe, there have been numerous documented "fraccidents" linked to poisoned drinking water, polluted air, mysterious animal deaths, and explosions. http://earthjustice.org/features/campaigns/fracking-across-the-united-states
If you read green news, you've heard of "fracking." If you follow progressive politics, you've heard of fracking. If you know much about modern energy production, you've heard of fracking. If you're an environmentalist, you've probably protested fracking. But those descriptions don't apply to the 63% of Americans who've never heard of, or aren't familiar with, the practice known as hydraulic fracturing.
Fracking this issue is so important not just to the areas where the fracturing happens because we source food meat from so many places such as Wyoming, Texas, Utah and others means that the animals that consume the glycol ethels and benzene that can cause cancer and brain lesions can get into the things we consume
