Fracking and The Planned Destruction Of Our Environment

A recent study confirmed that fracking caused a number of sizable earthquakes in a small town in Oklahoma. There have been studies linking fracking with earthquakes in other areas so it’s worth looking into the implications to see what’s really going on here in terms of the big picture and related deception.

First, a brief explanation: Fracking is a method of hydraulic drilling; injecting high pressure fluid deep into the ground to fracture shale rocks that then releases the extracted oil and gas. 40,000 gallons of water containing 600 odd toxic chemicals such as methane, formaldehyde, uranium, lead, mercury and some carcinogens make up the fracking fluid.

Toxic chemicals such as methane gas leach out from the fracking technology and find their way into nearby groundwater. For example, it has been found that this affects local drinking water wells, raising the methane concentration by some 17 times higher!

Times the above figures in other areas all over the world consider the scale of the world-wide environmental pollution… What about the damage to our environment..? What about the health implications..?

Only about a third to a half of the toxic fracking fluid is recovered which is left in open cavities in the ground, releasing volatile organic chemical vapours into the air and polluting the atmosphere… The remaining pollutants stay in the ground as non-biodegradable fluid.

-The upshot of fracking is that it obtains some 300,000 barrels (36 gallons a barrel) extracted per day at the expense of many, many environmental, health and safety hazards. The insanity of it all is that fracking has been allowed to continue through greed-driven corporations, misrepresented science and corrupt politicians receiving corporate backhanders to give it the okay.

Indeed, there have been world-wide protests demanding an end to fracking. Farmers fear financial ruin, people naturally express deep concerns about their health and the safety of their homes…

The fact that fracking has been happening all over the world in recent times should serve as a red flag warning to all of us. There is method in its madness. The global ruling elite as part of their agenda want to make certain land areas uninhabitable so that the inhabitants are forced to move away. They then go and live in the planned more densely populated areas called ‘human settlement zones.’

As part of agenda 21 these human settlement zones will be nothing more than a dystopia. They will be packed with people living in high-rise buildings housed in tiny dwelling places. Transport will be limited, people will be only restricted to these areas while being under surveillance by the militarized police force… This could be likened to the settings in the Hunger Games movie.

-If you have any concern for what is fair, honest and decent then now is the time to start campaigning. How do you think the future will be for you, your family and friends if you sit and do nothing?
