The subtitle of Wenonah Hauter’s new book is, “The Battle for the Future of Energy and the Environment.” Its subject is fracking.

Setting the stage for her indictment of fracking, Food and Water Watch founder and CEO Wehnonah Hauter devotes the opening chapters of Frackopoly to a concise, critical history of the industry that promotes it.

  Strongly opposed to further extraction of fossil fuels in any form, Hauter sees so-called “cap and trade” programs, such as California has enacted, and even a carbon tax as half-measures that fail to meet the climate change imperative.

Wehnonah Hauter will speak about Frackopoly tonight at Copperfield’s Books in Sebastopol.
