November 21, 2012. Carbondale. “Get the Frack out of Illinois!” That was the title of Monday’s announcement by the consumer and environmental advocacy group Food & Water Watch. The organization has teamed up with other volunteers, local municipalities and county governments to ban the controversial oil and gas drilling technique. So far, fracking has been successfully opposed by cities and towns across the state. Now, their effort moves toward a state-wide ban.
