FracDallas - Factual information about hydraulic fracturing and natural gas production

This website explores the facts, truths and myths about natural gas exploration and production using the slickwater horizontal hydraulic fracturing process in the Barnett, Haynesville and Eagle Ford Shales of Texas, as well as other shale formations nationwide. Our purpose is to present the best available information about natural gas exploration and production to help civic leaders and citizens make informed decisions about how to proceed with this heavy industrial process in their communities.

The links below offer access to a wide variety of community groups' and formally structured organizations' websites and blogs that are fighting to protect people and the environment from unsafe, hazardous, heavy industrial mining practices.
