MEIC is very good at seeing what’s coming over the horizon. They led on our subdivision and streambed laws, for which I’m very grateful every time I see an unspoiled view.
If you feel discouraged, that’s okay. It’s good to see the world clearly if that leads to action. Nothing is more important than conservation activism.

The science is in. The practice of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” can and does lead to contamination of ground and surface water. This fact has been shown in several studies that have conclusively demonstrated a link between fracking activities and groundwater pollution. These findings are not all that shocking, as no technology is 100% safe, regardless of the misinformation that the oil and gas industry has been spewing for the past decade. There are numerous ways that the chemicals used in fracking can pollute water, including during the drilling process, transportation to and from the drill site, while being stored after drilling, and when well blow-outs occur.
