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.

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.
