The act of fracking, the systematic cracking and stimulating rocks in order to increase crude oil output is highly contested. As opportunites to frack offshore become increasingly abundent, many environementally conscious individuals are concerned with the possible environmental impact of offshore fracking. David Wethe explains the growing trend and potential harm to the environment in his Bloomberg article. Deep Water Fracking Next Frontier for Offshore Drilling By:David Wethe Energy companies are taking their controversial fracking operations from the land to the sea -- to deep waters off the U.S., South American and African coasts. Cracking rocks underground to allow oil and gas to flow more freely into wells has grown into one of the most lucrative industry practices of the past century.
