Fracking Democracy > Why Pennsylvania's Act 13 May Be the Nation's Worst Corporate Giveaway

The draconian new law, known as Act 13, revises the state’s oil and gas statutes, to allow oil companies to drill for natural gas using the controversial process known as hydraulic fracturing or fracking, where large volumes of water and toxic chemicals are pumped into vertical wells with lateral bores to shatter the rock and release the hydrocarbons.

German environment minister dashes hopes for shale gas fracking

Germany's environment minister said on Monday he did not want to make it easy for companies to start using controversial gas drilling methods, or fracking, dampening gas explorers' hopes of tapping new energy sources on their doorstep. 'The message is we want to limit fracking, we don't want to facilitate it,' he told Deutschlandfunk radio. 'And anyway I don't see in the foreseeable future that fracking will be employed anywhere within Germany,' he added. Fracking involves pumping vast quantities of water and chemicals at high pressure through drill holes, which together with vertical drilling helps prop open shale rocks to release trapped gas. Critics say fracking may increase seismic risks and even pollute drinking water.
