Fracking’s Greatest Myth: BUSTED

    You seem to ignore the fact that water used on lawns, agriculture and such goes right back into the hydro cycle, while the millions of gallons used in fracking have to be removed permanently. Just a little detail that doesn’t work with your conclusions, so I can understand why you would ignore it.

    While he recognises that competition for water will increase, it will eventually reach the stage where the community will need to decide if t wants food or energy. So it will be out of the ands of the business world.
    Another major issue NOT covered in the article is the risk of polluting the aquifers. In Australia this is a real issue with the Great Artesian Basin, which has a water cycle in the order of 20,000 years!

    This article was either satire or an oil company paid this shill to spread misinformation. He is literally lying to us AND hiding all of the relevant information! As a California resident who is getting bent over backwards about water, I’m offended by Karim’s article.

    That detail is false, as someone who has done extensive research on the subject, I would argue that there are now portable recycling plants that can be put right in the oil fields that can recycle 80% of the water used in the fracking process to be reused, thus eleminating the need for so much additional water, in addition, they are now trucking in salt water and having it distilled in a process called distillation, something else that is being done onsight.

    Isn’t the process called desalination?
