The Latest On: Fracking
Greg Loarie, Attorney, California Regional Office, Earthjustice: “Analyzing the impacts of fracking is like analyzing the impacts of smoking cigarettes: there’s really no question that more fracking would be terrible for California.”
Joel Minor, Attorney, Earthjustice: "It's important to look at all of those spills together, and think about the total volume of chemicals and fluids, and waste products that are being spilled, and look at those cumulative impacts over time."
Michael Freeman, Attorney, Earthjustice: “What the Trump administration has done here is to abdicate its responsibility to protect public lands from the very real risks posed by modern fracking. It’s completely arbitrary. Instead, it simply amounts to a favor for Trump’s friends in the oil and gas industry.”
To round out a year of rollbacks, the Trump administration just repealed key regulations on fracking
Mike Freeman, Attorney, Earthjustice: “The move today represents just another example of the Trump administration sacrificing our public lands, air and water in order to pad the bottom line of oil and gas companies.”
