The fracking industry is one of the most secretive and deceptive industries in the country. They've managed to operate with little to no oversight from the federal government, and they've kept their secret fracking formulas from being revealed to the public, even though the chemicals they're using are leaching into groundwater supplies and poisoning men, women, and children.
