With the continual worsening of California’s drought, an odd argument -- in some ways as much meme as argument -- has arisen. It’s the notion that in the context of the drought, it’s important to cut back on the water used in industrial hydraulic ...

The Obama administration recently announced new rules to regulate fracking. But no one, it seems, is entirely happy with them. Fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, is the process of drilling and injecting fluids into the ground at high ...
