211. FUCKING FRACKING


'Fucking'  comes from the verb Fuck. Both of these words are commonly used by Americans. It´s used to give emphasis to something...like the title. For example you can say; It´s 'fucking' expensive, or It´s fucking good... or it´s fucking cold.
I want to speak about "fucking fracking"
It started in the United States and has spread to Europe. I wonder if people know anything about it. Well, mainly it is drilling and penetrating the earth´s surface, inserting tubes and filling them with dangerous chemicals to extract gas. Sometimes, the petrol companies drill up to 3000 meters just to suck up the natural gas in the rocks moving a lot of rocks and sand.
The big problem is that by moving the earth below, means that the weight that was above these layers of rock, will simply start to move...and when it moves it causes earthquakes.
The Spanish government has approved more than 57 fracking projects, mainly in the north of Spain.
Let´s see how long it takes before the north starts having earthquakes.
There was a fracking project in Ohio, USA, and soon after started to have more than 400 tiny earthquakes in a three month period, according to scientists.
Therefore, hydraulic fracking has the potential to trigger earthquakes in the near future. The other day, the area of Alicante experienced a tiny earthquake. Could this be the beginning of a bigger earthquake one day?
Is it really necessary to put people´s lives in danger by tampering with our planet Earth?
There are natural safe renewable energies like the sun, wind, biomass, biogas, geothermal, hydropower and offshore wind and wave energy.
It seems that man will never learn and one day our beautiful planet earth will experience serious problems, such as more climate change, dangerous pollution levels and very serious major earthquakes all over the world...only because man believes that 'money makes the world go round'.
