Congratulations to Josh Fox and all opponents of fracking on this victory!
While many Americans fully support a shift to renewable sources of energy, the oil and gas industries have doubled-down on fossil fuels and have pulled most of their funding out of renewable projects. Part of this switch can be blamed directly on the expanding process of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, which has led to a serious economic boom for the natural gas industry. But the practice is anything but safe for consumers. Ring of Fire host Sam Seder and documentary filmmaker Josh Fox discuss the dangers of fracking, and the influence of the gas industry on our government, which Fox profiles in his new film Gasland 2.
