Blackened water in domestic wells, cracked walls of houses - by companies extracting the gas these things should not happen. But it happened recently in Rogów in Mazovia as the result of prospecting research before drilling. If the sole prospecting has such effects, are justified concerns about the impact of gas production using chemicals on our drinking water, air and crops. So we should not allow the gas companies to extracting gas with chemicals. They say that their chemicals are not different from those used in the food and cosmetic industries. But after all, these are the poisons - proved the ability of sugar beet to the formation of cancer of the esophagus, not to mention the preservatives and flavorings. Therefore, let us not be manipulated. These mines will not give permanent employment because they are built quickly and do not require frequent human intervention. It is not true that we will gain a lot on the extraction of this gas, because all profits will go to the pockets of private mining companies - our authorities do not realise a fair distribution of profits. That is why we solely need to take care of our well-being. Please read the article entitled "On the first fire" in magazine "High heels" from 6 july 2013 and watch this material from NTV1:
