Hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) is used throughout the United States to produce oil and gas from “tight” shale formations bringing along with it good-paying jobs, economic growth, and reduced CO2 emissions.

California is nation’s third largest energy producing state and fracking here is a bit different than elsewhere in the country. Check our EID’s new infographic that looks at what scientists and experts have to say about fracking in the Golden State:
