Small town fracking



The CBC Radio One program Dispatches has done a  documentary on fracking in a small town in upstate New York. It demonstrates the push-pull between pro-fracking farmers in need of money by selling pieces of their land, vs environmentalists. It also points out the class differences involved in the fracking dispute. The program was on at 1 pm today, and you can get it in the next few days on podcast here:  http://www.cbc.ca/dispatches/
