Should Fracking Be Allowed?
Hydraulic fracking is a process of collecting natural gas and oil. A mixture of water, sand, and chemicals are pumped underground at a high pressure via a drilled hole. The sand mixture causes small cracks or fractures created underground in the rock layer, which allows the natural gas or oil to flow up a drilled hole and to the surface for collection.
