Dangers Of Fracking
There’s is a lot of fuzz these days in The Netherlands about Hydraulic Fracturing or ‘Fracking’. The Dutch government is examining the pro’s and cons about mining shale-gas and whether to go ahead with it.
Personally I’m not a big fan. Due to the amount of chemicals that has to be injected to get this gas to the surface. It’s a complicated issue with a lot of information. Linda Dong however has created a one-page scrolling website DangersOfFracking.com dedicated to explaining what resources and materials go in and out of the controversial process of Hydraulic Fracturing in the US. Her goal was to reduce the very complex system into a linear story in order to help people process the specific amounts of resources and byproducts that are used/created when generating natural gas.
I think she did a great job!
Linda: “Hopefully in the end, people are persuaded to reassess the benefits of natural gas and take action to help install more regulation of the process.”
I hope so too…
