Summary
Overview: Fracking for gas trapped in shale could be a game changer in the quest to find alternatives to dirty fossil fuels, but it also has potential for harm. This book provides "one-stop shopping" for everyone who wants to know more about the issues. Offers a comprehensive, impartial understanding of unconventional natural gas development from many different perspectives by experts in the field. -- Draws from the findings of the most up-to-date research and discusses areas where scientific findings are yet unclear. -- Addresses fracking's potential effects on humans, animals, and environmental factors including air quality, water quality, and climate change. -- Explains the economic, legal, regulatory, and ethical issues surrounding fracking. -- Examines social and community issues and the industry perspective
