We’ve discussed fracking – the practice formally called hydraulic fracturing – and have had on Steve Horn of DeSmogBlog and others to tell us what the oil and gas industry is up to with implementing it. Today we warmly welcome Anthony R. Inagraffea, Dwight C.

We’ll discuss what parts of the hydraulic fracturing process have been shown to be environmentally hazardous, and what parts, if any, have been shown to be safe. You want the facts? We’ve got them.
