Fracking in Times of Drought

Description 

"Like it or not, fossil fuel is the largest part of our portfolio for energy," said California State Senator Jean Fuller when asked about fracking during a drought.  Senator Fuller discusses how fracking in California is different than in other areas - it uses less water than most, and 80% of fracked wells in California are not over the water table.
