I did a neat little project about the pros and cons of fracking and how fracking affects the outside world. Fracking is a dangerous thing to do yet a viable source of energy.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting things that I learned was how easily people overlook the dangers of fracking. Often, the oil workers cover it up and tell everyone how good and clean it is. This is not really true!

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I learned that fracking is a bad insufficient source of energy. Also from another point of view, is a good, clean and viable source of energy. The use of fracking is spreading all over Canada.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

i cannot compare my life to those in my project because my project is about how fracking affects people in present day Canada. It is interesting to note that actually fracking is historical, because it has been going on for 60 years. People have not really understood how dangerous it is, until now.
