Quotes

"They say water is important because sugar is bad for you,” said third grader Ava Martinez."
...But DiGiulio did conclude the activity of the hydraulic fracturing industry is "poorly documented, hindering assessments of potential resource damage and human exposure,” In plain speak, their study confirms fracking is taking place at much shallower depths than previously thought and there is little in the way of data to accurately predict the potential human, let alone environmental, costs for such dangerous practices.
