New York fracking
David Letterman used his late night talk show as a platform to take on the oil and gas industry last night. For nearly two minutes, Letterman ranted about fracking and its potentially disastrous environmental effects.
A four-year study on hydraulic fracturing by New York's Department of Environmental Conservation is about to come to an end -- hanging in its balance is whether or not fracking will allowable in the state. The stakes are high and the public knows it -- the Department is currently weighing through 66,000 public comments.
