A largely unregulated method of extracting natural gas from shale miles below the Earth's surface is known as "fracking" and it poses threats to drinking water, our health and the environment.
The drilling technique involves blasting millions of gallons of chemical-laced water mixed with sand into the ground and then horizontally to release natural gas from rock formations thousands of feet underground. Opponents say the process can poison drinking water.
The industry doesn't have to disclose what's in the tens of thousands of gallons of toxic chemicals they use when they fracture the shale because of the so-called 'Halliburton loophole'.
Tell the EPA to demand that the major natural gas companies disclose their fracking fluid formulas before they are permitted to use this drilling technique.
