Observed from a distance, Fracking seems to be the answer to South Africa's energy crisis. Even Jacob Zuma is this year's state of the Nation Address referenced Fracking for gas as a viable solution to Eskoms inability to keep up with the domestic and industrial demand for electricity. Why then has countries like the Neatherlands, France and Germany have moratorium on Fracking. Well.. in this lesson under Secret Water Mission- make your own challenge, the grade 7 Water Explorer classes investigated the actual water sapping process of fracking for gas and were able to appreciate the true environmental cost in our our endless quest for energy. Current projections are that by 2030 KZN will run out of available water, every fracking incidence using a horrific 20 million litres of water. That's a whooping 12 800 Olympic size swimming, the children calculated. Not only is sourcing the water a great concern, but the toxic chemical used in the fracking process could also result in ground water contamination. After an interactive discussion, the children were now sufficiently knowledgeable about Fracking to demand ( in the fom of a petition) that the energy industry look for cleaner alternatives like solar and wind that does not have a negative effect on the environment and its people .Fracking fact Sheet is isiZulu and English were made distributed among the children to take home to their parents and community to educate and raise awareness about the dangers of fracking.
