Dr. Anthony Ingraffea,
Dwight C. Baum Professor of Engineering
at Cornell University, on the science, safety and
debate over hydraulic fracturing
-- or
"fracking" -- for natural gas.

Note: Dr. Ingraffea's research for over 30 years has involved fracture mechanics - the very thing that allows for fracking - and he maintains this is a highly faulty process that needs more work before waterways and the air are subjected to the failures documented by the gas industry's own experience....failures that unwitting landowners are then the victims of.
