 Issue: Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is an increasingly common oil and gas production technique that utilizes a concentrated pressure of water, sand and (hazardous) chemicals to fracture geological formations, most often shale rock, and stimulate the flow of oil or gas. In some situations, Fracking has been linked to severe instances of water and air pollution and other environmental harm.
Chadd has teamed up with the Environmental Defense Center of Santa Barbara to address this issue. Check out their webpage for more information on “Fracking.”
