Scientific American: When it comes to fracking, “All these states are flying blind.” | Amy Mall’s Blog | Switchboard, from NRDC.

When it comes to protecting the environment, first one must learn about clear and present dangers. The lastest threat is fracking. Start learning about the move to extract natural gas/oil from the land. Oil and gas companies are moving into Wisconsin to extract silica sand used in this operation. The people are being caught unaware of the risks of this procedure. I too am learning about it. Hopefully we can get ahead of the threat before it is too late.

    In a very few instance fracking is a useful tool for the most part it is a very dangerous situation though. Keep learning and speak out about dangers. The large corporations will not preserve your health or the environment when money is to be made.

      Thank you for your comment. I just learned that there will be a fracking conference in Eau Claire, WI soon. I hope to post details once I have the time to spend on it. Stay well, Mary Ellen
