Hydro fracking's global impact
Immediate solution to the energy crisis in the future
Fracking is a solution to an affordable energy supply to the world UK's future energy crisis due to low gas storage and rely heavy on import.
Exploring the hidden potential for natural gas around the world Many countries such as China, Australia, France, etc. have vast shale formation and potential for hydro-fracking natural gas. China has estimate 1,275 trillion cubic feet of technically recoverable gas compared to 862 trillion cubic feet in US
Lower energy costs for other countries around the world High cost from buying shipping energy from other countries High costs to build nuclear plans for energy
Global environment will benefit from hydro-fracking
Solution to deal with global warning Carbon dioxin emission decrease as the US's emission decrease 7.7% since 2006 Importing energy through pipeline cause environmental damage due to methane leakage during transit
Less toxic compared to nuclear plans
Japan's nuclear shut down after tsunami disaster due to the toxic effect to the environment and people around the areas
Benefit the countries's economies as wellas the world's economy Partnership between China and the U,S create more jobs and stimulate the economy in both countries
Global environmental's negative change
Shale gas extraction cause earth tremors: possible earthquake but not strong and serious and only around the extraction area. Long-term risk for the underground water resources that might cause public health risks
Many countries has not tapped the natural energy resource due to technical hurdle and political issue due to the danger that hydro fracking can cause to the people live near the s France has...
