The easily accessible resources have been consumed. And the companies are using more and more harsh toxic methods to extract use resources. Hydraulic fracturing is 1 such toxic extraction method for the (supposedly) “clean” alternative to petrol of “natural” gas, in which undisclosed chemicals mixed with water and sand is injected into shale, where there are hard to get deposits of natural gas, thus loosening the natural gas deposits, then they drill… the water, sand, chemicals, and gas residue gets in the water causing cancer to people who drink that water. The pipelines and drilling fractures the earth so much it causes earthquakes!
We can’t continue to live at the expense of the necessities our lives are based on! We need to say no to the frackers of haliburtan and BP, this land at the very least is someones peoples home at the most is a living ecosystem thats we are continually consuming! Vermont has led by example by preemptively baning fracking,  California is in a similar process with legislation to ban fracking as well as a citizen’s petition. The complicated thing about california is, the sort of already frack! It’s just different enough that it’s not called “hydraulic fracturing” (maybe they just use chemicals not water? As if that. Makes it. Better, it still causes the. Same problems).  We need to change our lifestyles away from using electricity.
