Hydraulic fracturing (hydrofracking or fracking) is a process of pumping water, mixed with a fraction of a percent of chemicals, into wells at least 3,000 feet beneath the surface, considerably lower than the water tables.
Abundant natural gas obtained through hydrofracking has made alternate forms of energy increasingly irrelevant. The alternative known as ethanol uses more petroleum than it saves. Those squiggly light bulbs cost more, produce less light and the mercury inside makes them dangerous if broken. At the same time, there’s been a sharp decline in natural gas prices, thanks to the states that do allow fracking.
So why do some New York elected officials and candidates seeking election demonize fracking? Because those who worship the god of man-made global warming want us to use costlier alternatives. They want to create an artificial market for the alternatives by making fossil fuel more expensive on the false assumption it will save the planet.
