Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” is a controversial method of extracting previously unavailable oil and gas reserves from the ground by fracturing rock by injecting pressurized fluids. Proponents claim that it opens up vast amounts of natural gas within the U.S. and could play a key role in the United States gaining energy independence within the not too distant future. Opponents claim that the chemicals used in fracking represent a significant environmental risk to ground water and other elements of the environment.
