What's the harm? Oil and gas are essential to our everyday lives, so what's wrong with devising an easier way to extract them from the earth? The upside is that our fuel needs will be steadily met, offsetting any potential environmental or societal risks...right?

Of course, if the risks involve the pervasive spread of carcinogenic chemicals and toxic waste, not to mention worsening climate change, perhaps other alternatives need to be considered.

Fracking, short for hydraulic fracturing, is the process of taking millions of gallons of water, mixing it with tens of thousands of gallons of chemicals - including known carcinogens - and pumping it all underground at extreme pressure to break up rock formations and release oil or natural gas. Championed by some politicians as the next best thing in oil & gas extraction, fracking has been roundly criticized as a dangerous - even deadly - practice for which the risks far outweigh any possible benefits.

Throughout the pages of Fracking America: Sacrificing Health and the Environment for Short-Term Economic Benefit, author and investigative journalist Dr. Walter M. Brasch exposes hard core truths about the controversial practice of fracking. Combining his own exhaustive research with interviews of hundreds of government officials, industry professionals, and affected residents, Brasch presents one of the most definitive, comprehensive treatises on fracking ever produced. Far from melodramatic hyperbole, the information featured in Fracking America serves as a startling - yet much needed - wake-up call for citizens worldwide, making it clear that vigilant action is required on all our parts to ensure the safety and security not only of our local communities, but the future of our very planet.

An essential, highly recommended read.
