The Dangers of Fracking to Water Supplies

Charles Whitaker, focusing on the oil and gas extraction method known as hydraulic fracturing (fracking), argues that the technology endangers water supplies. The target of fracking, coal seams and shale deposits, lies at an average of 7,700 feet below the surface, far below the water supply (200-400 feet deep). The concrete lining surrounding the descending and ascending parts of fracking wells for about 1,000 feet below the surface breaks up under the high-pressure flow of water, sand and chemicals used in fracking. The result is the introduction of oil, gas and/or chemicals into the groundwater supplies. Loopholes in Federal legislation exempt frackers from reporting all the chemicals used in their operations. Partial lists indicate the use of some highly toxic and cancer-causing agents. Considering the potency and the amount of these chemicals, the number of wells in existence, the fact that a single well might be fracked multiple times, and that 35,000 new wells are dug annually, the risk to the integrity of groundwater is real. Jeremiah 30:6-17 indicates that Israelites will suffer from widespread sickness during the time of Jacob's Trouble, possibly the result of environmental degradation of soil, air and water in the years just prior to that time. Deuteronomy 28:68 indicates that Israelites will be unemployable during that time, perhaps because they are too sick to compete effectively on the world labor market. Israelites' pandemic disease may induce some governments to quarantine them to minimize the spread of disease, while other governments may exterminate large numbers of Israelites. Such governmental policies, should they eventuate, will add to the suffering of dispersed Israel during the time of Jacob's Trouble.

Big Pharma Fail: No Evidence of Added Benefit in Most New Drugs, Study Finds
Alarmingly, only a quarter of those drugs showed any significant medical added benefit based on the available evidence. What's more, 16% showed even a minor added benefit, and a whopping 58% of studied drugs did not show any added benefit over standard patient care. When the drugs were separated by speciality, the results were just as unsettling: just 6% of psychiatric drugs showed added benefit, along with 17% of diabetes drugs..

Abortion Support Is the Highest It's Been in Two Decades as Challenges Mount
Even within party ranks, allowing or banning abortion in all cases is a minority position. Among Democrats, 77 percent say abortion should be at least mostly legal, but just over 4 in 10 (42 percent) say it should be legal in all cases. Among Republicans, 52 percent say it should be at least mostly illegal, but fewer than a quarter, 22 percent, want it to be illegal in all cases.

Next-Generation Satellites Could End Privacy With 24/7 Surveillance Worldwide
But satellite imagery is improving in a way that investors and businesses will inevitably want to exploit. The imaging company Planet Labs currently maintains 140 satellites, enough to pass over every place on Earth once a day. Maxar, formerly DigitalGlobe, which launched the first commercial Earth observation satellite in 1997, is building a constellation that will be able to revisit spots 15 times a day. BlackSky Global promises to revisit most major cities up to 70 times a day. That might not be enough to track an individual's every move, but it would show what times of day someone's car is typically in the driveway, for instance.

Humans Are on the Verge of Merging With Machines
If we are able to somehow merge these technologies with the human body—through chips in our brains or bodies—Harari says this would be the biggest revolution in all of human history. Throughout our existence as a species, we have always been able to manipulate our environment and create tools that make our lives better. But until now, we haven't been able to manipulate ourselves.
