TALKING POINTS

  • Alaskans have a right-to-know about fracking operations in and around their communities.
  • Fracking operations often involve large volumes of water, which in turn create large volumes of waste water.
  • Oil & gas operations aggravate climate change, and fracking only makes it worse.
