Assignment Instructions

The small city of Waynesville, Texas, has been identified as a candidate for hydraulic fracturing (aka”fracking”). Fracking is defined by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) as an “oil and gas well development process that typically involves injecting water, sand, and chemicals under high pressure into a bedrock formation via the well. This process is intended to create new fractures in the rock as well as increase the size, extent, and connectivity of existing fractures.” The result of this process increases gas or oil flow in low-permeability rocks, aiding extraction. Amid worries of disruption to the small town life afforded by the citizens of Waynesville, and concern for environmental impacts, the city council is considering a ban on fracking within city limits. To aid in their decision, they have sought the opinion of members of the community and experts alike. Your job will be to debate the following motion: The city of Waynesville should impose a ban on fracking You have been assigned a side, Pro-ban Your role is geologist specializing in metals and minerals Writing Assignment – • For a more comprehensive evaluation, the city council has asked you to prepare a written, well-researched statement of your position on the issue. Provide a paper of 750 -800 words arguing for or against fracking from the perspective of your role, addressing potential objections and arguments of the opposite side. • You must cite at least 10 references in your paper and corresponding bibliography. These can include the two you used in your introductory statement. Online and print articles are both valid, but they must be reputable sources – no blog sources, un-cited web articles, or Wikipedia (though you could use some sources cited by Wikipedia). Feel free to use the extensive campus library resources or Google Scholar. The website Web of Knowledge will be especially helpful for this. • In your writing assignment think about how you would respond to people who disagree with you. What about all of the jobs that fracking could bring to Waynesville? Or what would you say to someone who says that fracking is getting “cleaner” and won’t cause these environmental impacts anymore? A. Introduction -Introduce who you are, your position, why your statement should be considered, and the thesis of your argument. B.
