Monday March 23: Read some or all of the articles on the legalities of hydraulic fracturing and be prepared for a discussion via zoom during your “scheduled class time” on Tuesday or Wednesday depending on your section hour. Please consider the control via laws of the following issues: effects on local communities, water pollution, use of public lands or other forms of destruction to the environment. If, in your research, you have found other good sources regarding laws governing hydraulic fracturing, I would love to add them!
