Kalah Isaac Hydraulic Fracking 1. Hydraulic fracturing is the process of extracting crude oil and natural gas from vast underground shale formations. The cost of this process is that drinking water can possibly become contaminated because there is no way to control the spread. They also come with noise and air pollution. They also frivolously use large amounts of drinking water that can’t be cleaned once used. The benefits are simply being the leader in oil production and a possible bridge to cleaner renewable energy. 2. Water pollution, land pollution, and air pollution these are generated during the fracking process at a substantial amount. 3. The water pollution at, the safe drinking water act, the toxic substances act, and some more have been put into play to stop the things that happen during the fracking process. None of these are extremely effective because the problem that they were created to avoid continues to happen till this day. They need to hold these companies to a higher standard.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
