High volume horizontal slickwater fracturing - otherwise known as hydraulic fracturing, or simply “fracking” - is the new frontier in the West’s overreliance on fossil fuels. Involving the drilling of horizontal wells that are then injected with large volumes of water, sand and chemicals at high pressure, “fracking” is the latest boom industry. But, the consequences for communities and the environment are devastating. Traveling to Pennsylvania, Eco Storm visited a once-quiet town that has woken up to discover that polluted water supplies, noise pollution and even exploding wells are the real cost of big business. In a final insult to those communities affected by the catastrophic practice, the “Halliburton loophole” signed by George W. Bush effectively exempts the gas industry from having to reveal the mix of chemicals used to break up sub surface rock. Eco Storm investigates the extent and harm of the latest trend in fossil fuel extraction.
