Update re Hydrofracking – Good Luck to Josh Fox!

February 27, 2011

For a chilling update on the dangers to the water supply raised by hydrofracking, or hydraulic fracturing, a high-powered form of natural gas drilling, check out today’s New York Times article by Ian Urbino.  For my old post on whether or not we need clean drinking water in a fracking new world, check here.   Finally, good luck to Josh Fox, writer, filmmaker, moving force behind the documentary Gasland, which has brought so much attention to this issue and is up tonight for an academy award.  (The film would be a shoe-in if the Marcellus Shale were located in California.)
