“[Legislators] are looking for an immediate win.”
“The community voice is often overwhelmed by profit motives.”
“We need a national ban on fracking. Regulated fracking is a farce, it doesn’t work.”

We’re joined also by Alison Grass who is the Research Director for Food & Water Watch. Listen to part one here. This story was co-produced by HMM Correspondent Mark Dunlea.
