Erroneous, erroneous. LE-OH NO! on both counts! Not only has fracking helped to lower CO2 levels to their lowest in 25 years by expanding the use of natural gas for electrical generation, numerous studies have proven that it doesn’t pose a major threat to groundwater – just ask the EPA or USGS. As for the quantity used, water used specifically for fracking accounts for less than 1 percent of Texas and national freshwater use, and significantly less than the amount used for watering your lawn.
