A US Geological Survey report finds that fracking was the most likely cause of a 4.9 magnitude earthquake that struck Kansas in 2014.
Charging reports with criminal activity is the latest tactic by those doing the bidding of fossil fuel companies. Why is there no public outcry at this unconstitutional behavior?
Climate scientist James Hansen has written a new research paper that says only carbon sequestration can prevent destructive climate change.
