As oil and gas companies expand the practice of hydraulic fracturing to extract natural gas, more and more evidence is surfacing to show us that fracking is one of the most dangerous gas extraction methods available. As the practice expands, water tables are being polluted with fracking chemicals, airborne particles are becoming a serious threat, and evidence is even suggesting that fracking could be responsible for minor earthquakes.
