Lisa Margonelli talked about her Pacific Standard article on the oil and gas drilling method called hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking.” She said public debate on fracking had primarily been focused on the viewpoints of anti-fracking environmental activists and pro-business interests, so she focused on the more everyday effects of fracking, such as taxation and regulatory concerns, safety, and the impact of fracking on communities and local economies.
This program was part of a “Washington Journal” series highlighting magazine articles. The title of Ms. Margonelli’s article is “The Debate We Aren’t Having.” close
