About the book:

The Fracking Debate directly addresses the most common questions and concerns associated with fracking, including: What is fracking? Does fracking pollute the water supply? Will fracking make the US energy independent? Does fracking cause earthquakes? Is fracking regulated? Is fracking good for the economy? Coupling a deep understanding of the scholarly research with travels to every major US oil and gas producing region, Raimi highlights stories of the people and communities affected by the shale revolution, for better and worse.

About the author:
