Public pressure, not regs, will force cleaner fracking -- Jackson

Public pressure like that from residents of a small town in Pennsylvania who claim their water has been fouled by hydraulic fracturing will force the industry to make its practices greener, U.S. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson said today. "Fracking fluids will get greener, water use will get down, all because the industry, quite frankly, will do it, must do it, and will feel the public pressure -- not the EPA pressure -- to do this in a responsible way," Jackson said, speaking at a conference in Washington, D.C., this afternoon hosted by the National Council for Science and the Environment.
