Fracking (fracturing) has been going on my whole life (56 years) and more. My father was a petroleum engineer for Halliburton and was often away from home on a frac job during all of my growing years. This is not a new and dangerous thing. I’m sure the technology has improved… it just took 50 years or so for some environmental wackos to catch on. Scare tactics… that’s what they are best at. Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, Kansas… it’s not a new thing in any of those places!
