Today we drill into the fracking bonanza across America. Hydraulic fracturing – or fracking – is unleashing a torrent of cheap natural gas and oil supplies. It is also whipping up controversy. Supporters say natural gas can reduce carbon pollution that is driving wild weather. Opponents say it is causing more problems than it solves for the land, the water supply and global warming. The upside and downside of hydraulic fracturing, coming up on Climate One.

This program was recorded in front of a live audience at the Commonwealth Club of California.

This program will air on KCPW-FM 88.3 and 105.3 on Friday, October 18, 2013 at 9 AM and 8 PM.  For more information you can go to their website:  Climate one logo
