RALEIGH -- A major player in the oil and gas industry is trying to blunt criticism of a controversial approach to drilling.  Baker Hughes says it will release information on all of the chemicals it's using in fracking.  Amy Wall of the Natural Resources Defense Council calls it a positive step.

Wall says, "It allows first responders, local officials, medical professionals to understand the risk if there is some type of accident and know how to treat people. It also gives homeowners the ability to understand what might be in their water if it becomes contaminated. But it does not make fracking safe."

In March North Carolina Environmental Partnership was formed to fight what they view as threats to North Carolina's environment, starting with fracking.
