1. "Hydrofracking: What Everyone Needs to Know," by Alex Prud'homme
2. "Snake Oil: How Fracking's False Proise of Plenty Imperils Our Future," by Richard Heinberg.
A careful reading of these three books will make you your local expert on hydraulic fracturing -- "fracking" -- and the fact that it DOES NOT offer any hope of energy independence. In fact, quite the contrary. . . fracking is diverting our attention from the fact that we continue to use far more energy than we produce.
I purchased four of each of these three books -- donated one set each to two local libraries, put another set at my church, and kept one set for myself.
