Hydraulic Fracturing, or fracking, is a process that enables the extraction of natural gas from deep in the ground, by causing fractures in rocks. It's been around for about 60 years, and is considered to be one of the best processes, leading to a drilling boom in parts of the U.S. But now, more than ever, the negative effects are coming out.
