What’s fracking?

Basically a process of drilling for natural gas that destroys the water table and contaminates drinking water. This should be illegal, but thanks to the Halliburton Loophole signed by Bush/ Cheney in 2005, gas companies are exempt from  disclosing the chemicals used during hydraulic fracturing.
