Fracking Will Fracture the Climate

“By 2030, the U.S. is on track to produce 60 percent of the world’s new oil and gas supply, an expansion at least four times larger than in any other country. By 2050, the country’s newly tapped reserves are projected to spew 120 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.” What is happening here, is terrible for the environment. With this much oil being produced, it’s impossible to slow down global warming. It’s going to cause so much money worth in damages and also speed up the rate global warming is going at. Do you want the world we live in to perish? Do you want your life to end short, just because of humans not taking care of the environment? No, I didn’t think so because I don’t want that either. Please help us stop fracking. It is causing so much damage to the environment we live in and time is really running out. Please go sign our petition and help us save the environment we live in.

 Amid mounting calls to phase out fossil fuels in the face of rapidly worsening climate change, the United States is ramping up oil and gas drilling faster than any other country, threatening to add 1,000 coal plants’ worth of planet-warming gases by the middle of the century, according to a report released Wednesday.

By 2030, the U.S. is on track to produce 60 percent of the world’s new oil and gas supply, an expansion at least four times larger than in any other country. By 2050, the country’s newly tapped reserves are projected to spew 120 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.

That would make it nearly impossible to keep global warming within the 2.3 degrees Fahrenheit above pre-industrial averages, beyond which United Nations scientists forecast climate change to be catastrophic, with upward of $54 trillion in damages.

The findings ― from a report…
