“A lively, exciting, and definitely thought-provoking book.” —Booklist Things looked grim for American energy in 2006, but a handful of wildcatters were determined to tap massive deposits of oil and gas that giants like Exxon and Chevron had ignored. They risked everything on a new process called fracking. Within a few years, they solved America’s dependence on imported energy, triggered a global environmental controversy, and made and lost astonishing fortunes. No one understands the frackers—their ambitions, personalities, and foibles—better than Wall Street Journal reporter Gregory Zuckerman. His exclusive access drives this dramatic narrative, which stretches from North Dakota to Texas to Wall Street.

Over the past decade a new and controversial energy extraction method known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, has rocketed to the forefront of U.S. energy production. With fracking, millions of gallons of water, dangerous chemicals, and sand are injected under high pressure deep into the earth, fracturing hard rock to release oil and gas. Wenonah Hauter, one of the nation’s leading public interest advocates, argues that the rush to fracking is dangerous to the environment and treacherous to human health. Frackopoly describes how the fracking industry began; the technologies that make it possible; and the destruction and poisoning of clean water sources and the release of harmful radiation from deep inside shale deposits, creating what the author calls “sacrifice zones” across the American landscape. The book also examines the powerful interests that have supported fracking, including leading environmental groups, and offers a thorough debunking of its supposed economic benefits. With a wealth of new data, Frackopoly is essential and riveting reading for anyone interested in protecting the environment and ensuring a healthy and sustainable future for all Americans.

The Ossipee Riverlands brings to life the shared and individual history of Effingham and Freedom. These two New Hampshire towns bordering Maine were once one town called Effingham, with the meandering Ossipee River running through the middle of it. Over the years the river caused numerous disputes and in 1831, caused Effingham to divide into two towns. In an effort to areunitea the two towns in regard to their common heritage, The Ossipee Riverlands brings together a group of pictures grounded in the mutual reliance on one resource, the Ossipee River. This volume shows the shift from hillside farming, rural school districts, horse and buggies, and the use of water power to a more mobile society catering to summer boarders, artists, writers, and campers arriving by train, then automobile.

People organising to protect their environment is not a new phenomenon, but the groups that have been pushing for environmental change since the 1970s have not convinced sufficient numbers make sustainable decisions or to lead sustainable lives. Governments have serially failed to do the job at the international level. Now, climate change, resource depletion and widening social aspirations threaten to destabilise human society unless sustainable change can be influenced from another direction. The Coming of Age of the Green Community explores the activities of a new generation of community-led initiatives that may herald the beginnings of the next wave of activism. Erik Bichard combines the testimonies of dozens of group activists with historic evidence and the views of a range of commentators from a variety of disciplines to put forward reasons why some green community groups succeed while others fail. He concludes with a valuable prescription for both existing and emerging groups on how to be sustainable, both over time and in their actions. This book address one of the key questions of the twenty-first century: has the local perspective on this universal concern finally come of age?

Williston, North Dakota was a sleepy farm town for generations—until the frackers arrived. The oil companies moved into Williston, overtaking the town and setting off a boom that America hadn’t seen since the Gold Rush. Workers from all over the country descended, chasing jobs that promised them six-figure salaries and demanded no prior experience. But for every person chasing the American dream, there is a darker side—reports of violence and sexual assault skyrocketed, schools overflowed, and housing prices soared. Real estate is such a hot commodity that tent cities popped up, and many workers’ only option was to live out of their cars. Farmers whose families had tended the land for generations watched, powerless, as their fields were bulldozed to make way for one oil rig after another. Using a mix of first-person adventure and cultural analysis, Blaire Briody's The New Wild West is the definitive account of what’s happening on the ground and what really happens to a community when the energy industry is allowed to set up in a town with little regulation or oversight—and at what cost.

Moe Thibault is a lovable octogenarian who sometimes thinks he's Jacques Clouseau and who's convinced he once had an identical twin. While living out his widower's retirement in upstate New York, Moe is sent an obituary from Martha's Vineyard with a photo of his apparent Doppelganger, a man named Leroi Uxem. Could this have been his long-lost brother? However, the appearance of energy prospectors intent on setting up a fracking operation offers a threat to the Vineyard. As a Senior Richter Minister of the Church of Seismology, Moe considers fracking to be a sin against the Earth and God - a deity who Moe believes is called Yolanda. Accordingly, he begins a campaign to stop the frackers before they can make a shambles of the island. His associates include Mike Uxem and his wife Nicki, Moe's niece Velma Trailer, Artie Wetzo (a pal of Leroi's), and Larry Hitch, Moe's former business associate and the owner of a sex-obsessed monkey. Can they foil the frackers? Will Yolanda kick butt and take names like she did at Pompeii two millennia ago? If you like irreverent stories with zany characters, Uncle Moe and the Martha's Vineyard Frackers just might be for you.

Daisy the milking cow is a happy, friendly, placid cow who loves to listen to the birds sing. One day, the silence is broken when trucks arrive next door and workers chop down the trees. They bring noisy machinery and build tall towers. There is a terrible loud sound that is never ending. The animal’s nerves become jangled. The bees and the birds leave. Jasmine the duck loses her feathers and becomes sick from her polluted pond. Daisy is so nervous her milk has bubbles. People arrive with banners to protest about the fracking. Daisy rallies all the animals to join in the protest and help the people. War is declared; their farms are threatened. Many farm animals, pigs, geese, goats, chickens, and naughty hawks join the protesters. The animals become a nuisance, climbing over the machinery and eating the workers lunches. The hawks bomb the workers with eggs. Together, people and animals successfully drive the frackers to a desert. This is a hilarious story of cooperation, determination, and caring for the community and the environment. Animals and people become the best of friends, and Daisy becomes a local hero.
