Hi,MY names Gavin Pitts from Nagel Middle School during this quarter are grade has been studying what is fracking Hydraulic fracturing is the process of drilling down vertically to get natural gas from shale rock layers deep within the earth.

I think fracking is not safe because in the areas where Fracking is taking place, it is causing crimes which isn’t beneficial to the economy, it also causes methane to get into peoples water and it is effecting surrounding Fracking areas with toxins.

I choose to send my letter to you because as I said before I do not like fracking and When i was looking for places in ohio that frack I found an article titled Youngstown man admits dumping toxic fracking waste into Mahoning River
that tells how a man from cleveland took oil and gas drillings and dumping them into the mahoning river (McCarthy, Online) when i saw this i thought that maybe writing to a news channel in cleveland it could get shared on a show and it could reach people in cleveland and make them realize that frackings bad and maybe even end fracking there.

Fracking is not safe because in the areas where Fracking is taking place, it is causing crimes which isn’t beneficial to the economy, it causes methane to get into peoples water also it is effecting surrounding Fracking areas with toxins.
