An award-winning journalist and Pulitzer Prize finalist offers an insightful, no-holds-barred exploration of today's most controversial yet promising new energy technology: fracking. Fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, is the process of injecting fluid into the ground at extremely high pressure in order to fracture shale rocks and release the oil and natural gas inside. It has been the subject of three major films, countless news articles, and has become a hotly contested topic both for its environmental impact and its positive effect on the economy and job creation. In The Boom, Russell Gold examines both sides of the arguments and illuminates the truth of this frequently misunderstood technology.
