Under Pressure

Record #:
The state just released a draft report on fracking that outlines the many dangers of fracking, but concludes that it can be completed safely if properly regulated. Governor Beverly Perdue and the Department of Energy and Natural Resources recently opposed fracking, but have suddenly reversed their views over the past few weeks. All indications are that the state does not have the regulations, the enforcement, or the infrastructure in place for fracking and to prevent environmental disasters caused by fracking, but will look to go ahead with the practice anyway.
