Environmentalists to NC House: Frack NO!

The NC House is poised to give final approval this afternoon to legislation that would allow fracking for natural gas in North Carolina as early as next year. Environmentalists and concerned citizens converged on the General Assembly at noon to urge lawmakers to reject the rush to frack.
