Concerned About Fracking

HF ImageWithin the last decade, the combination of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) with horizontal drilling has initiated large-scale drilling for natural gas across the United States.

In this series, we explore some of the many reasons advocates are concerned about the impact of fracking on human health and the environment.
