Hillary Clinton raised objections to fracking for oil and natural gas during the Democratic debate last night, saying the process would be substantially limited if she’s elected.
She would oppose hydraulic fracturing in states that do not want it and apply regulations to reduce methane emissions and protect water, Clinton said, emphasizing past statements.
“I don’t support it when any locality or any state is against, No. 1. I don’t support it when the release of methane or contamination of water is present. I don’t support it, No. 3, unless we can require that anybody who fracks can tell us exactly what chemicals they are using,” Clinton said.
“So by the time we get through all of my conditions, I do not think there will be many places in America where fracking will continue to take place,” she said. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/clinton-would-limit-fracking-sanders-just-says-no/
