All Fracking Is Local

The Bureau of Land Management, which is part of the Environment Protection Agency, wants to rescind a rule proposed by the Obama administration that seeks to prevent water used in fracking on public lands from leaking into water supplies and making them toxic to humans and animals.

So what if a few people have to die? It’s not easy being a great country, you know.
