Detroit Bans Fracking
JULY 26, 2011
Detroit’s City Council has made history in Michigan by becoming the first in the state to pass a resolution supporting a ban on fracking. Detroit joins 65 other municipalities across the US who have taken a stand against the environmentally disastrous practice. Detroit sent a strong message indicating that a ban on fracking is necessary to protect public health and preserve Michigan’s natural resources,” said Lynna Kaucheck of Food & Water Watch.
