Snake Oil: How Fracking's False Promise of Plenty Imperils Our Future

For Beyond 50's "Green & Sustainable" talks, listen to an interview with Richard Heinberg. He is one of the world's foremost energy educators. Heinberg casts a critical eye on the oil-industry hype that has hijacked America's energy conversation. He'll discuss about fracking (that is the process of hydraulic fracturing) from both economic and environmental perspectives, informed by the most thorough analysis of shale gas and oil drilling data ever undertaken. Is fracking the miracle cure-all to our energy ills, or a costly distraction from the necessary work of reducing our fossil fuel dependence? The fossil fuel industry is trying to sell fracking as the biggest energy development of the century, with slick promises of American energy independence and benefits to local economies.
