Responding tothe prompts with regards to my peer’s work

  1. Good job! I thought that making encyclopedia entries was a really helpful way of describing articles because it helped me to understand the Greenpeace movement.

  2. When you wrote that the UK plans on using hydrofracking to drill oil, I understood you to mean that it has become an environmental friendly mining technique. Is that what you mean? If so, have you thought about the anti-fracking activist civil movements!
