3 Kinds of Treekillers:
Deforestation, earthquakes, and fires are the consequences of Canadian frackers,.
Before the fires, Alberta frackers had already deforested several hundred square miles , creating a barren moonscape. harming the rain patterns by removing the trees whose evaporation becomes mist, then clouds, then rain. The same results come from cattle and sheep ranchers who remove trees In addition their grazing animals eat sapling trees. The lumber industry also removes centenarian trees. When replanting occurs by some of the companies, it is only seedlings, not massive trees of over 100 years.

Repson Oil is one of Alberta's frackers linked to causing Canada's biggest earthquake.

Senator Bernie Sanders' assertion that Hillary Clinton according to State Dept. records has promoted fracking around the world is well documented.

Alberta earthquake 8 points linked to frackers. Senator Bernie Sanders' assertion is well documented.

Frackers are causing devastation everywhere. In Oklahoma, there are between 5 and 6 earthquakes a day of a magnitude of 3. or above. The poisonous brew, a chemical stew which frackers inject into the ground is poisoning eventually every watershed, killing people and animals, causing water faucets to burst with flame, creating fires as well as quakes from the deforestation.

In Ohio, in the Youngstown area alone there have been 819 or more earthquakes.
