Undoubtedly, America needs energy. With the announcement yesterday of 30 million barrels of oil being released from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, our country is seeking new energy alternatives, be them green or otherwise. Hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, is a fast growing method of extracting natural gas from shale rock.

Undoubtedly, America needs energy. With the announcement yesterday of 30 million barrels of oil being released from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, our country is seeking new energy alternatives, be them green or otherwise. Hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, is a fast growing method of extracting natural gas from shale rock. But it’s also earned sharp criticism for the potential hazards to the environment. Join us to discuss this we have Patrick Creighton, a spokesman for the Marcellus Shale Coalition, which is a trade group representing shale gas producers, and Karen Feridun, an anti-fracking activist and founder of the organization Berks Gas Truth.
