IT IS ALL ABOUT THE WATER!
The average amount of water one person consumes in a lifetime, based on 90 gallons consumed each day, for 70 years is 2.3 million gallons of water per average lifespan.
In 2009 Texas, Pennsylvian, and West Virginia had a total of 177,351 producing gas wells.
Hydraulic fracturing for each of these wells, based on 3 million gallons of water used per well, equals 532 billion gallons of water in one year.
This water is gone forever. Pumped into injection wells or left deep underground and not fit for consumption.
Based on these figures the amount of water used in one year in 3 states for hydraulic fracturing gas wells is as much water as 230,000 people consume in a lifetime.
This is comparable to taking the water supply away from a city the size of Lubbock Texas or Orlando Florida for it's entire population for 70 years or one whole generation of the population.
Water cannot be created from any renewable energy source.
THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR WATER AT ANY PRICE
