Of note: In addition to thoroughly and concisely giving a summary for each ESP EN category, the summary looked up and listed additional relevant information including the sources (websites: USDA, WHO). Although it was a 15 minute video, I paused on multiple occasions to take notes, so it took 30 minutes to watch. Writing the summaries (including side research) took about 1 hour. I use complete sentences, but avoid any extra “fluff” text. The sentences are straight to the point and factually accurate. I highlight specifics and avoid broad, general statements whenever possible. Date of Article or News Report: Not available

Title: The Cost of Fracking Type: printed article viewable media , podcast, TED talk other, describe: One sentence topic summary:This source reveals the mainly negative effects of the oil drilling strategy, fracking Citation ( MLA format ): - 022417-A1-REPORT/report.html Description of how this story impacts Economics, Society, Politics, and the ENvironment. E Even though the strategy of fracking makes it easier for us to access oil, fracking in return damages the value of real estate. The article states that a study in 2010 in Texas showed that houses that were valued below $250,000 and within 1,000 feet of a fracking site saw a 3 to14 percent decrease in in the initial home value. Along with damaging property value, fracking damages infrastructure. The Marcellus Shale Region(Northeast United States) and The Barnett Shale Region (Texas) saw a combined $305 million expended in repairing roads, buildings, etc. due to damages from fracking. In a broader sense, fracking in general undercuts long-term economic prospects in areas/regions where the oiling strategy takes place, impacting entire industries such as farming and tourism. This could lead to an insufficient amount of crops being produced and less income via foreign people from less tourism. S The effects of fracking are sufficiently taking a toll on the public health. Fracking depletes the amount of clean water, thus, raising the price for farmers and ranchers to obtain clean water. For farmers in Colorado, the price of clean water was raised %1,100 due to fracking in areas near farms. Fracking not only depletes the amount of clean water, it has had negative financial impact on people in areas of fracking due to the amount of ozone smog created. The financial impact is presumed to be around $1,648 per ton of nitrous oxide and volatile organic compounds produced. In the Dallas-Fort Worth area, it is estimated that in the summertime, the price tag for the public in medical bills amounts to $270,000 due to ozone smog inhalation. P Fracking has provided divisive political issues in Colorado. The largely liberal city of Boulder has banned the oil-drilling method in city limits. Local politician Jared Polis worked on getting signatures on his ballot to enable surrounding communities to follow in Boulder’s foot steps. The only thing in his way in Governor John Hickenlooper, who is in strong belief that fracking is good for the state’s economy.

    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.
