The Green Quote: Mark Ruffalo Dreads Natural Gas Drilling

“To get to the natural gas buried in the shale, companies do something called hydraulic fracturing, known as fracking. They drill down and inject fracking fluid–a mixture of water and some of those 590 chemicals–into the well at high pressure to blast the rock apart and release the gas.

Like most gold rushes, this fracking boom is pretty lawless. A loophole in the Safe Drinking Water Act exempts it from all regulation. This isn’t even a case like the Deepwater Horizon disaster in which BP disregarded the rules. There simply aren’t any fracking rules for companies to follow. The results speak for themselves.”
