Fracking Western Maryland records local activities in the area as well as excellent footage recording State Assembly actions taken to allow this to happen. The recent information is vital for anyone who wants to know the current efforts to bring fracking into Maryland AND the efforts needed to stop it. Fracking, unless something happens in this year's Maryland assembly, will begin in western Maryland near Deep Creek Lake in 2017.
Fracking operations are terribly destructive, poisoning groundwater, ruining ecosystems as well as the quality of life for anyone near them, and a huge step in the wrong direction regarding climate change.
