Scientist: No Need to Fear Fracking

Featured Audio

A Case Western Reserve University science professor says fracking isn't as bad as some think when you compare it to other forms of energy development. Fracking shale to extract gases uses less water, for example, than making solar panels and disrupts less land than a wind farm. Also, the EPA just said fracking hasn't harmed groundwater. Environmentalists disagree. Viewpoints, theirs and yours, Wednesday morning at 9:00 on the Sound of Ideas.

Beverly Z. Saylor, associate prof. of Stratigraphy and Sedimentology, Case Western Reserve University
