About this book

In Frackopoly: The Battle for the Future of Energy and the Environment, Wenonah Hauter, one of America's leading clean-water advocates, argues that the rush to fracking is dangerous to the environment and treacherous to human health. This is the first book to describe how the fracking industry began, the technologies that make it possible, the destruction and poisoning of clean water sources and the release of harmful radiation from deep inside shale deposits. With a wealth of new data, Frackopoly: The Battle for the Future of Energy and the Environment is essential and riveting reading for anyone interested in protecting the environment and ensuring a healthy and sustainable future.

Media reviews

"At this critical juncture in human history, Frackopoly is a must-read. Rich in history and science, it allows us to understand how we've got to this point and gives us the courage to continue the fight. Wenonah Hauter and Food & Water Watch were essential in legitimizing the call to 'ban fracking' across the United States. Her book is a powerful account of that vital necessary struggle and where we have to go from here."
– Josh Fox, director of Gasland and How to Let Go of the World (and Love All the Things Climate Can't Change)

"Real life anti-fracking superhero Wenonah Hauter delivers the definitive story on how big oil and gas corporations captured our political system and schemed to frack America – and the growing grassroots movement to retake our democracy and protect our planet."
– Mark Ruffalo, actor, director, and advisory board member of Americans Against Fracking

"Even though I have lived every chapter of this book, from beginning to end, I couldn't, as a reader, put it down. What makes Frackopoly so riveting is not the economic evidence, public health data, and the political analysis – although that's all here, too – but the brilliance of the author as the teller of this tragic-yet-hopeful tale. Wenonah Hauter is that rare narrator – a gifted writer and an environmental leader with a box seat in the public arena. A must-read for all who care about climate change, democracy, clean water, breathable air, and energy policy. Which is to say, all of us. Read this book and let your eyes be opened to the hoodwinking of America by the fracking industry."
– Sandra Steingraber, biologist and author of Living Downstream: An Ecologist's Personal Investigation of Cancer and the Environment

"A truly powerful manifesto about one of the greatest environmental fights on our planet today – from one of its greatest champions!"
– Bill McKibben, environmentalist and author of Oil and Honey
