The City Council Member Who Fights Fracking
Hydraulic fracturing to get oil and gas out of the ground--"fracking"--troubles a lot of people. Including a majority of the city council in Lafayette, Colorado.
The council adopted a Climate Bill of Rights and Protections last year, and is making other moves to keep fracking activities from starting within city limits.
City Councilor Merrily Mazza is one of the fracking opponents, and she's taking her message on the road, to Medford last night (May 22), and to North Bend and Eugene Wednesday and Thursday. She drops by the studio to talk about the legal limits on fracking... and on the people trying to block it.
