The science is already in on fracking: The fossil fuels that this extreme oil and gas extraction technique aims to unearth will cook the planet. And many of the chemicals used in fracking -- chemicals now finding their way into our air and water -- are known carcinogens.
We can't let this toxic practice continue. In California recent revelations have shown that for many years state regulators have failed to protect perfectly good aquifers from oil industry wastewater -- adding insult to injury for a state in severe drought. Indeed, hundreds of fracked wells continue to inject toxic wastewater into clean aquifers, and in many cases millions of gallons of the toxic fluid continue to be dumped into illegal, unsafe and unlined pits.
