In a recent sit down with WAMC's Alan Chartock, former Gov. Eliot Spitzer commented on hydrofracking.

Spitzer announced his own trepidation surrounding fracking, which he described as an extremely “tempting” prospect considering the employment and energy possibilities. Ultimately he was highly skeptical of the technique, citing the potential environmental and health dangers. Because President Barack Obama has endorsed fracking, he stressed the need for federal regulations in this industry.
