Wenonah Hauter presents Frackopoly: The Battle for the Future of Energy and the Environment

---

A true tale of corruption and greed, Frackopoly: The Battle for the Future of Energy and the Environment exposes how more than 100 years of political influence peddling facilitated the control of our energy system by a handful of corporations and financial institutions. It provides the public policy backstory and the history of deregulation that has turned our communities into sacrifice zones.

Even in such dire circumstances, Frackopoly author Wenonah Hauter is hopeful. People who are sick, tired and fed-up are standing up to the corporations and forcing their policymakers to take action. Frackopoly chronicles the power generated by an exciting grassroots movement that is not only fighting to ban fracking — it is helping to take back our democracy.
