Fracking: Is It A Threat?

Is natural gas a bridge to a clean energy future, or just another fossil fuel contributing to global climate change? Is the drilling technique known as hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” a means to make gas cost competitive, thereby pricing coal out of the market, or is a dire threat to the water, land and air in the places where it’s practiced? On August 19, Eco-Radio KC will explore this issue in depth, interviewing a representative of the Kansas Independent Oil and Gas Association (KIOGA), an industry group that supports the expansion of natural gas exploration in Kansas, and a representative of the Kansas Sierra Club, who is concerned about both the pollution and the carbon effects caused by fracking. Monday, August 19, 6PM on Eco-Radio KC.
