People trust NPR for investigative and unbiased coverage of the news. But their promotion of the American Natural Gas Alliance commitment to the environment calls into question their even handed approach to this volatile issue. It is like denying climate change. The adverse health and environmental impact of hydrofracking are well documented. Some states (Vermont) and some countries (France) have completely banned it. In NY, many citizens are fighting the industry's attempt to start fracking here. NPR should not promote fracking for gas.
