New Concerns Over Hydraulic Fracturing
This month we’ve seen a lot of stories on fracking, hydraulic fracturing to get natural gas from shale. Among these, an EPA statement on water pollution, a report on earthquakes happening in unusual areas, fights over which government controls the land and how shareholders get information on fracking risks that landowners don’t. Shale natural gas accounts for 27 percent of natural gas production in the U.S. And natural gas provides a large part of this country’s energy needs. With jobs, energy and the impact on the environment, Diane and her guests look at new concerns over hydraulic fracturing.
