You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on this global crisis, our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We're bringing you stories from the front lines, and voices you simply won't hear anywhere else—but we’re counting on you to make it possible. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift goes twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to support Democracy Now! with a donation, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.

Fracking

Democracy Now! reports on the controversial oil and gas extraction hydraulic fracturing process, known as fracking. The practice involves blasting sand, water and toxic chemicals deep into shale rock to release oil and gas, a process which can contaminate water supplies and pollute the air. Many communities are concerned about adverse public health effects for people that live near fracking sites.
