Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Over the past few years a flurry of LNG and methanol projects have been proposed for Northwest communities from Vancouver, BC to Coos Bay, Oregon. There is a glut of natural gas being produced and these LNG facilities and methanol refineries are the fossil fuel industry's way to get all this natural gas to market. But why is gas so abundant and where is it coming from? The short answer is fracking, a reality that the gas industry does not want to emphasize as they continue to promote natural gas as a green alternative to coal and oil.

On this episode of Locus Focus, we talk with Sandra Steingraber, an environmental writer, research biologist and anti-fracking activist, who lives a top the Marcellus Shale in Upstate New York, one of the first regions to feel the impacts of fracking. We'll talk about why fracking is so destructive to our watersheds and communities and how people are successfully organizing to stop this brutal assault on the earth.
