The History of Fracking by Russell Gold
Static Preview
Fracking for oil and natural gas is transforming the way America powers its economy. The flood of low-priced natural gas has undercut new nuclear plants and nudged utilities to pull the plug on old ones. Cheap gas also has stolen market share from coal and also hit renewable sources of power such as wind and solar. Now the fracking bonanza is spreading to China and beyond. With the US poised to become the world's largest petroleum producer in a few years the world's new energy equation could undermine OPEC and profoundly alter the geopolitical balance of power. Russell Gold's new book "The Boom" illustrates Texas oilmen and Oklahoma wildcatters who developed and perfected hydraulic fracturing technology that ushered in a new era of American industry. In this video, Gold gives a brief history of the origins of fracking, and how the industry got to where it is today. Speaker: Russell Gold, Reporter, The Wall Street Journal; Author, The Boom: How Fracking Ignited the American Energy Revolution and Changed the World This program was recorded before a live audience on April 1, 2014.

Frac Biocides DeepLife by Sandra Steingraber
Static Preview

Methane Emissions killing the atmosphere, and frac-well injection of biocides killing 'Deep Life'. How Long Is This New Bridge To Doom Town?

Sandra Steingraber is an acclaimed ecologist, cancer survivor, and author of "Living Downsteam" and "Raising Elijah". She gave a fascinating account of extremoophileapos; bacteria that feed in the hydrocarbon rich shale layer which are responsible for fouling up the works when the shale is fracked. Biocides are one constituent of fracking fluid that poses an unacceptible risk to our health. What is the ecological relationships of the subterranean biota to the rest of life on the planet? No one knows.

Natural Gas Wells in Pennsylvania: an infographic
Static Preview

Infographic, cumulative natural gas wells drilled in Pennsylvania, January 2005-April 2012.

The animation illustrates Pennsylvania's relatively recent transition from conventional vertical wells (black diamonds) to horizontal wells (red diamonds), drilled mostly in sections of the Marcellus, Utica, and Geneseo/Burket shale formations located in the northeast and southwest portions of the state. The animation also shows that as horizontal drilling increased, the number of vertical wells—which are typically less productive—fell, resulting in an overall decline in the state's new well count.
