Give it up, cats and kittens! Ummmmm, fracking, I mean. 😉

Could I possibly be any more in ❤❤❤❤❤ with these three? Don’t think so.

I live in fairly close proximity to Mordor. They like their fracking there. Love their ‘precious’ a whole heap, too…

A little background on fracking:

Hydraulic fracturing is the propagation of fractures in a rock layer, as a result of the action of a pressurized fluid. Some hydraulic fractures form naturally- certain veins or dikes are examples- and can create conduits along which gas and petroleum from source rocks may migrate to reservoir rocks. Induced hydraulic fracturing or hydrofracking, commonly known as fracking, is a technique used to release petroleum, natural gas (including shale gas, tight gas and coal seam gas), or other substances for extraction. This type of fracturing creates fractures from a wellbore drilled into reservoir rock formations.

The first use of hydraulic fracturing was in 1947 but the modern fracking technique that made the extraction of shale gas economical was first used in 1997 in the Barnett Shale in Texas. The energy from the injection of a highly pressurized fracking fluid creates new channels in the rock, which can increase the extraction rates and ultimate recovery of hydrocarbons.

Proponents of fracking point to the vast amounts of formerly inaccessible hydrocarbons the process can extract. Detractors point to potential environmental impacts, including contamination of ground water, risks to air quality, the migration of gases and hydraulic fracturing chemicals to the surface, surface contamination from spills and flowback and the health effects of these. For these reasons hydraulic fracturing has come under scrutiny internationally, with some countries suspending or even banning it.

Sooooo, yeah. Please, don’t frack my mother? Uh, thanks, baby. 😉 💋

  1. Thanks for the info. I was clueless. Instead of raping Gaia, possibly we should cut down on our toys?

    • You’re very welcome. 😊

      The fracking is distasteful. There’s carbon sequestration, too. Which is just — if not more — risky but has it’s proponents, as well?

      I dunno? Methinks the risks are just way to big to assume?

      I’m a bit ashamed to admit it was jolly-good fun to watch Sean, Yoko and Jimmy tear ‘the man’ a new one all in jest, hey? 😃 lol
