Three of the myths I like to point out are
- Fracking makes your water flammable - Flammable water in the region is due to natural causes and has been reported for over 100 years.
- Fracking is new - Fracking has been around since 1947
- Fracking in earthquakes - Fracking has indeed been tied to earthquakes, but less so than "green" geothermal energy and hydro-energy.
One of the biggest issues I have with the environmentalist establishment is how they always focus on the worse case scenario even when it is not warranted. Anti-fracking environmentalists fall into this trap by using the movie Gasland to spread falsehoods that can be dismissed to the point rational people will doubt any possible problem caused by fracking.
