Wenonah Hauter: ‘Frackopoly’


Town Hall Seattle
1119 8th Ave 98101 Seattle United States
With opposition to fracking growing via twitter campaigns (#whatthefrack, #banfrackingnow) and even protests in our own city, Winonah Hauter’s new book Frackopoly provides a timely look at the history of fracking. One of the nation’s leading public interest activists, Hauter (Food and Water Watch) will tell the story of the surprising mix of interest groups who paved the way for fracking and the technology that made these “sacrifice zones” possible. She’ll also debunk common misconceptions on the economic benefits of fracking and shed light on what grassroots organizations are doing to fight back. For anyone who has ever wondered what fracking really is all about, her talk is a must see.
