Clearing up what Hydrofracking means
By now, you’ve probably heard of the term “fracking” and have a foggy understanding that it has something to do with extracting natural gas from the ground. Unfortunately, the term has been spun by various media to mean something new, unnatural and rife with bad consequences, says engineer and environmentalist Greg Kozera.
“Greater independence from foreign oil, job creation, a cleaner environment and a much-needed shot of economic growth is just the beginning of what hydraulic fracturing has meant to us in recent years, yet many think of fracking as the new dirty word, associated only with corporate greed,” says Kozera, an expet in domestic energy and author of Just the Fracks, Ma’am.
