“Hydrofracking: What Everyone Needs to Know,” World Bank, DC

Fracking is one of the most promising yet controversial methods of extracting natural gas and oil. Today, 90 percent of natural gas wells use fracking. Though highly effective, the process-which fractures rock with pressurized fluid-has been criticized for polluting land, air and water, and endangering human health.

This event is a book launch of Alex Prud’homme’s book, “Hydrofracking: What Everyone Needs to Know.” The book tackles this contentious topic, exploring both sides of the debate and providing a clear guide to the science underlying the technique.

Light lunch will be served. RSVP to infoshopevents@worldbank.org or click here.
