Civic Commons: Deep in the heart of fracking

Texas is known for many things: the Alamo, armadillos and big slices of toast among them. And the output of oil and natural gas is a Texas-sized reality far exceeding the ten gallon hats you see on the guys driving the pick-up trucks. Oil energy is king, but natural gas exploration is a prince in waiting, and fracking is one way that gas may just take over the throne. Join Dan and Noelle as they talk to representatives of The News Outlet, a group that sent students to Texas to see what the future of fracking might be here, based on the years it has been done deep in the heart of fracking.
