Embroiled in Fracking?

engage EDU

Maryland passed a ban on fracking after years of delays, study, and proposed regulations. It was a perfect storm that led to the ban, but not without one very important tool. EDUCATION! The more people learn, the more convinced they are that fracking's certain and uncertain risks outweigh the benefits.
