Fracking, commonly used to tap oil and natural gas deposits elsewhere in the country, allows access to hydrocarbon resources otherwise unreachable by conventional drilling operations.

Concerns over potential fracking in central Shoes Converse
The Center for Biological Diversity recently filed a formal administrative protest to the Bureau of Land Management regarding a planned July 17 sale affecting 102 areas near Tonopah and Austin in central Nevada. The group contends the sale could open up more than 270 square miles of land to hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.

Fracking, which occurred for the first time in Converse Shoes For Women High Cut the Silver State in March, presents some worrying hazards, critics said. They're urging the BLM to cancel the lease sales.
"The recently released National Climate Change Assessment makes it abundantly clear that the climate of the United States is already being hurt by human induced changes and that the situation will only get worse with time," Mrowka said. "It's human folly of the worst kind to add to the changes through more fracking, simply for the short term economic gain of a few companies."
Houston based Noble Energy, Inc. is pursuing fracking to reach oil deposits across some 580 square miles of private and public land generally located between Elko and Wells. Two exploratory wells have been drilled about 17 miles east of Elko, with fracking conducted at one in March.
Fracking can require the use of millions of gallons of water per well, potentially lowering water tables, reducing the water available to communities, damaging wildlife and industrializing previously wild terrain, critics said. They said the process can involve use of chemicals that are carcinogenic and otherwise hazardous to humans and which pollute the air.

chemicals into deep shale formations, fracturing the rock and allowing oil or gas to seep into a well and rise to the surface for extraction. Fracking allows for horizontal drilling deep underground, accessing more deposits than possible using a vertical well.
"Fracking in other parts of the country has repeatedly shown the practice to be dangerous both for human health and the environment," said Rob Mrowka, a senior scientist for the center. "It poses an imminent threat to one of Nevada's scarcest resources water as well as clean air and wildlife habitats."
