Interconnectedness, earthquakes and fracking...
Devils Hole is a detached unit of Death Valley National Park that is actually located in Nye County, Southern Nevada, within the Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. If you have any doubt about the interconnectedness of things on this planet, watch this video shot on March 20, 2012 at Devils Hole just 10 minutes after a 7.3 earthquake in Oaxaca, Mexico. Now, think about fracking chemicals leaked in one place in an aquifer, and seismic waves that don't stay in one place. What do you think will happen to fresh water in that aquifer when one considers that fracking causes earthquakes? One effect is probably high-speed turbulent mixing of fracking chemicals with your drinking water.
