Hydraulic fracturing is the future. Hydraulic fracturing or other wise know as hydro-fracking is a process used to obtain natural gas from deep down in the earth. A drill is first used to drill deep down into to earth and then horizontally for about 8000 ft each way. 6-8 million gallons of water and a small amount of other chemicals are pumped down into the ground with such force that it breaks rocks and other earth materials containing natural gas. One of the major drilling sites is the Marcellus basin deposit , this deposit contains a tremendous amount of natural gas, equivalent to 80 billion barrels of oil, that's a lot of gas!!!!!!! Hydro-fracking can gives us huge amounts of energy, it will decrease the cost of living and will have a great affect on today's economy.
