WELCOME TO THE REVOLUTION
The revolution has already begun. The fracking revolution, that is.
The Fracking Truth is a primer on America’s ongoing energy revolution, but it’s also a call to action. The oil and gas industry has failed itself and failed the American public by doing a poor job of educating the public on fracking and related technologies that have created the American energy revolution. Readers will learn about the myths and the truths of the controversial practice of fracking, how the United States is benefitting from the fracking boom, and how fracking can actually help the US and the world achieve climate change goals.
The Fracking Truth seeks to bridge the information gap between public perception and an industry that fuels our daily lives, our national economy, and our future.
After years of economic devastation and turmoil, the energy boom driven by fracking gives us a second chance at security, prosperity, and global leadership.
Let’s hope we get it right.
Calmly and without vitriolic rhetoric Faulkner shows the positive aspects of a well tested process to gain energy from below the surface of America, thus creating an environmentally safe use of our own resources for energy, lessening and eventually negating our dependency on other countries for energy sources. Faulkner’s book should be widely read before falling victim to hearsay and Hollywood-tainted brouhaha. Then decide, individually, how to consider fracking.
In The Fracking Truth Faulkner brings a great deal of clarity, intelligence and insight pertaining to a subject matter that is often at the forefront of some heated debates. I have to admit that The Fracking Truth does articulate sound arguments in a persuasive and accessible manner connecting many of the dots that the media and others have missed in the past.
This energy expert and sought after speaker details the ins and outs of fracking in The Fracking Truth hoping to convince the reader that fracking-environmentalist is not an oxymoron.
Throughout this book, Faulkner delves into how the process of ‘fracking’ works and why it is safe. The Fracking Truth ends on an optimistic note and anyone who had reservations about the potential danger of ‘fracking’ should be satisfied. This is an essential primer for all citizens of the planet concerned about America in the 21st Century.
The author describes The Fracking Truth as a primer on the ongoing energy revolution as well as a call to action. Since the 1940s when fracking began in the U.S. the process has yielded more than seven billion barrels of oil, more than 600 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. By fracking with the horizontal drilling approach, America can meet its energy needs without all the fallout predicted by doomsday opponents.
Faulkner does a good job of articulating the stakes inherent in the decision whether or not to pursue fracking technologies. …the book has made an important contribution to the fracking discussion.
No doubt everybody in the U.S. should read this book. The details of the history and projection of our industrialized nation related to the energy industry are phenomenal. Whether you are the editor or writer of a newspaper or magazine, president of a major or small business, environmentalist or movie star, professor or student, construction worker or roughneck, nomatter what position you hold, especially the people in public and government offices will have a different view of the world we live in after reading this book.
