Environmentalists Protest Oil Fracking

A coalition of environmental groups in California is trying to stop a controversial type of oil and gas drilling called “hydraulic fracturing”, or “fracking.” Protesters took their message to a Federal auction of oil and gas leases in Sacramento, where they blasted the leases as a step toward more fracking that could threaten drinking water, endangered species, and even lead to increased global warming.
