WHICH STATE, WHICH COMMUNITY, BENEFITS?

July 21st, 2014

COMING TO A DORMANT FAULT NEAR YOU…

July 19th, 2014

States where hydraulic fracturing is taking place have seen a surge in earthquake activity, raising suspicions that the unconventional drilling method could be to blame, especially the wells where the industry disposes of its wastewater.
