You'll Become An Expert On: Fracking

Pennsylvanian Josh Fox received a letter in the mail offering him $100,000 in exchange for the right to frack (hydraulic fracturing) his land. Though energy companies continue to insist that fracking is a safe process, when Fox, moved by the proposed drilling on his land, toured the country, investigating fracking, he found "flammable, foul-smelling water, sick people and animals, and families who no longer use their wells but truck in all their household water."
