In our previous blog (Oil Prices, Predictions, And How They Can Affect You!!!), hydraulic fracturing (otherwise known as fracking) was mentioned as an alternative, if somewhat controversial, way of extracting oil.  This method has been used more and more in the USA over the past ten years, but unfortunately, as you may have heard, fracking has been reported to come with a number of hazards.  Many of these reported risks directly affect our environment, so as you can imagine there is often much debate over whether or not it should be allowed.
