Say NO TO FRACKING
Say NO TO FRACKING

Sakhile Grade 7 learners this week decided to tackle the Secret Water Mission looking at the very controversial and topical issue of Hydraulic Fracking. Fracking is the extraction of gas from between layers of shale and is punted as a ‘green’ alternative to petrol and diesel. It is anything but. The process uses numerous toxic chemicals mixed with sand and water that is blasted underground vertically and horizontally (up to 3kms) into the layers of shale to fracture the rock and thus release the gases.I Recently, the oil industry and big Multinational co-operations have expressed interest in Fracking not only in the ancient shale beds of the Great Karroo, but also in KZN Midlands. In an already water scarce country, it is not feasible that we should be using our precious underground water supple to supplement the fracking process at a whooping 20 million of litres of water for one frack. With toxic carcinogenic chemicals like Benzene and Radon used to lubricate the drill holes, potential leaching of toxic substances into the water table is grave possibility,The dolorite dykes in the Midland shale beds, compartmentalize the shale, and once breached, gas can escape and polluted groundwater can occur. After a revealing discussion, Sakhile Grade 7 children signed a petition to SAY NO TO FRACKING- "We choose clean drink over gas", Nonthanda commeted.
