Ask the Professor - Fracking And The Shale Gas Revolution
Earnest MonizIt’s a mining-industry breakthrough that has already created half a million new jobs and unlocked a 100-year supply of natural gas – the cleanest fossil fuel –inside our own borders. So what’s the problem with “fracking?” Today, we discuss the controversy surrounding hydraulic fracturing. What is it? Why do advocates say it promises to transform the energy marketplace? And why do critics warn that it poses a major threat to communities across the nation?

Guest:
  Ernest J. Moniz, Professor of Physics and Engineering Systems at MIT and the Director of the MIT Energy Initiative
