Presbyterians encouraged to study fracking
Environmental Ministries is compiling a list of resources on fracking that will be added to our website in the near future.
In the meantime we would like to call attention to an excellent new web posting on legal issues of fracking; especially see the first two articles. These articles were produced by the Congressional Research Service of the Library of Congress so they should be unbiased.
They concern legislation at the federal level and are timely as they were just published this month (July, 2013).
