Hydraulic fracturing is highly misunderstood by many people. Very few individuals are well informed about how fracking works, and even fewer have analyzed the research carried out by universities, the EPA and other agencies to determine the efficacy and safety of the technique. Perhaps the most important thing you can do to spread awareness for, and dispell myths relating to, fracking, is to stay informed and discuss the method with your friends and colleagues.
Another important duty of civic minded citizens is to make your voice heard to local, state and federal politicians. This is especially important in states like New York and California where the future of fracking is questionable. Give your local representative or senator a call or send him/her a letter/email today.
