Static Preview

A look at what crosses the Steel Bridge (built in 1910) here in Portland, Oregon a few miles from my home. Is that crude oil in those tankers?

The History of Fracking by Russell Gold
Static Preview
Fracking for oil and natural gas is transforming the way America powers its economy. The flood of low-priced natural gas has undercut new nuclear plants and nudged utilities to pull the plug on old ones. Cheap gas also has stolen market share from coal and also hit renewable sources of power such as wind and solar. Now the fracking bonanza is spreading to China and beyond. With the US poised to become the world's largest petroleum producer in a few years the world's new energy equation could undermine OPEC and profoundly alter the geopolitical balance of power. Russell Gold's new book "The Boom" illustrates Texas oilmen and Oklahoma wildcatters who developed and perfected hydraulic fracturing technology that ushered in a new era of American industry. In this video, Gold gives a brief history of the origins of fracking, and how the industry got to where it is today. Speaker: Russell Gold, Reporter, The Wall Street Journal; Author, The Boom: How Fracking Ignited the American Energy Revolution and Changed the World This program was recorded before a live audience on April 1, 2014.
