Thousands of wells have been fracked across California — in cities, in farmland, next to schools, in the ocean, and in our National Forests.  But little has been studied about what the impacts will be to the state's air, water, food, and communities. For years in California the practice has largely operated behind closed doors and without regulation. Recognizing the complex and often technical nature of the statewide and national conversation around extreme oil and gas extraction, this project's mission is to help deepen society's understanding of the human and environmental costs that come from our dependence on oil. View the entire project at www.facesoffracking.org.
