New York’s mayor, Michael Bloomberg has had a history of voicing his opposition to the idea of ‘fracking’ in his city. His avid objections led to the ban within his state on this type of drilling near any watershed. But, his opinion seems to have changed, within specific guidelines.

Fracking is the drilling of natural gas using a method called hydraulic fracturing. In essence, it pumps large quantities of water into the rock and shale areas that hold natural gas, causing a fracturing process to release the gas. The process has been heralded by some and caused horror for others. Areas that have had extensive fracking have also experienced environmental problems. Mayer Bloomberg is now promoting the concept of fracking, but under strict environmental guidelines.
