"Full Stop" on Fracking
Educate yourself about the 21st Century "Clean (use this word lightly) Energy Gold Rush," better known as "fracked natural gas," and find out that this is in fact anything but Clean, Natural or a Gold mine. Fracking is a dangerous, loosely regulated method of natural gas extraction that involves pumping a toxic sludge made up of hundreds of chemicals, many of which are "proprietary" and not disclosed, thousands of feet underground to break up rock that is trapping natural gas. This gas is then released and these dangerous chemicals come back to the surface for disposal. This process contaminates our drinking water, our land and the air that we breath.
