Fracking madness

This audio slideshow at Pro Publica gives one reporter's experience in western states being invaded by the natural gas boom.

The image, from the slideshow, shows the 700+ wells already drilled in a particular area. 4,400 have been approved.

Twin bills have been introduced in Congress to bring fracking under the authority of the Safe Water Act, where is belongs, and from which it was exempted by Cheney's backroom energy deals during the Bush administration.

Contact your Congresspeople today to urge passage of The FRAC Act.
