Default school me on Fracing? and why doesn't FB like anyone discussing it?

or Fracking? I don't know much about it, have seen a couple people debating it, but what's most curious to me is how FB doesn't like you to use the word.

Call me a tin foil hat wearer if you wish, but I was curious so I tried a little test.

First I linked to an article about Waterford Twp, which mentions Fracing...

the article link appears like anything else, but the link doesn't seem to work for those I've talked to.

test 2 - if I add either work Fracing, or Fracking to the message as I post it nothing appears to anyone, except it shows up on my own wall, no where else...

So what does this mean? I have absolutely no idea.
That's why I'm bringing it to the all knowing GL4x4 to discuss.

Are you talking about underground fracking? It's where they put a giant drill bit into the ground into shale rock to get the natural gas out. The problem isn't about the drill bit, it's about the slurry they pump down into the bit to keep it cool. People claim it poisons ground water and kills animals.


The super crazy nutcase people also think fracking is the us government's plan to set off earthquakes.

This is the reason I don't frequent facebook often, too many stupid people.

I believe he is saying that anything he writes or links in a facebook post containing Fracking or Fracing seems to not go through.

Maybe you ate too many cookies...

I have had facebook not like videos I have posted which have copyrighted music. They wouldn't post our firework show because of the music that was playing gets flagged by their software as copyrighted. It would download, but never post, and never tell you anything, just wouldn't post.

Fracking is the process of pumping a slurry of sand ,typically 30x50 mesh or 40x70 mesh, into the ground it high pressure, up to 6000 psi, to open up fissures in the ground extract oil and natural gas trapped in once inaccessible ‘tight’ rock formations. Fracking takes place typically a mile below the earth’s surface and thousands of feet below the water table. Its a good question to ask if your considering your property.

People fear 3 things.
1. Air pollution.
2. Water table contamination
3. Earthquakes

Any time you deal with sand blowing in the wind air pollution will be existent but... Strict guidelines on how the sand is used and air pollution is tightly monitored. The big oil companys do not want to make people angry and will invest millions on methods to keep air pollution down.

Actual fracking takes place below the water line it has not been proven to this day that fracking has affected the water table. Many think by fracking under the water table it will releases residual chlorine which is combined with ammonia into the ground water.

Earthquakes are not caused by fracking it is caused by how the company disposes waste water. Drillers inject it into deep wells underground, as deep as 13,000 feet below the surface. If the disposal well is near a fault line then earthquakes could occur.

Check out this video its pro frac but so am i so here

Fracking is the methodology that makes massive (and by "massive", I mean, a 150-year supply - factoring in growth and uses like CNG vehicles - that is bigger than Saudi Arabia was when it was discovered) deposits of natural gas located in the United can be economically accessed. Other methods do not work as well, or at all.

Obviously, like any invasive action, fracking requires care to be taken and controls to be in place - just like it is for mining, quarrying, conventional drilling, etc...

That large element of our society that is disconnected from how the things we eat and use come from and believes that we could power our whole economy and lives using sporadic wind turbines (that require tax subsidies just to be "high priced") fears fracking because of what COULD happen. They view all business (except Apple and others who pay million$ to shape their public personas) as evil-doers, looking to contaminate the earth to make a buck. C'mon - Matt Damon said so.

I've wondered (without doing any research) how much this will impact the world's water supply. As I understand it, once the water is pumped into the ground, there is no getting it back. How much water is actually predicted to be used compared to the world supply?

Stossel had a report on this, I think it was 1 out of every 1000 wells tested around fracking sites had contamination that was "measurable"

An average well requires between 1.2 and 3.5 million US gallons and depending on how many times you fractionate the well it could be in the range of 3 to 8 million US gallons over the wells lifetime. It does pose a problem if your in a heavy drought area. I don't believe recovering the water from the frac or flowback well is a option. 30-70 percent of the water introduced flows back from the frac. It cant be sent to a water treatment or reused for another frac but because of the demand of water is so large no facility clarifier can process that much water.

The problem is that they can't control where the gas goes. A good documentation about this is Gas Land.

Absolutely EVERYTHING humans do impacts the planet in some way. I propose that the radical environmentalists do there part to restore the earth by laying down and expiring, thereby releasing their selfish hold on the nutrients their bodies contain and enrichening the earth.
