Hydrofracking

  • We all sort of know what it is
  • The companies won't make the chemicals used public information because they consider it propietary but also then citizens can't find out all the chemicals being used to pollute the water
  • We discussed issues with fracking which the secretary doesn't feel like writing them down although she should since she is sort of falling asleep and paying attention and writing stuff down keeps her awake
