Description

Mark Ruffalo produces and narrates this direct appeal to the President to join the "anti-fracking" majority. Across the US people are seeing firsthand the impact of reliance on yet another dirty energy process, including unheard stories of pollution and contamination here in California. Hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas is hardly the path to energy independence that many promote.
