As US fracking moves into suburbia, Tulsa bans it within city limits.

Guardian: “Some cities have moved to limit fracking or ban it outright – even in the heart of oil and gas country. Tulsa, Oklahoma, which once billed itself as the oil capital of the world, banned fracking inside city limits.” “The authorities in Dallas last week blocked what would have been the first natural gas well in town.” …But Gardendale, a suburb of 1,500 people near the hub of the west Texas oil industry, exists in a legal and political environment in which there are seemingly few restrictions on fracking, even inside city limits. For residents here, fracking is part of daily life.”
