Begins with alert about Fukushima fear-mongers.

This week we'll examine the real costs of fracking for gas. Author, professor, and journalist Walter Brasch reports from Pennsylvania. Another sad story from the state already raped by oil and coal. Detailed health impacts, and crazy law that prohits doctors from telling patients, other doctors or the public the true causes of illness from fracking.

Then UK energy activist Helen Rimmer (Friends of Earth) explains the rabid government push for fracking, and the coming wave of misery for Great Britain. Details of public protests, including dropping giant wind blade outside fracking operation in Manchester. Plus government bribes local councils with 100,000 pounds ($163,000) for each test drilling they approve. Whole country up for grabs - say goodbye to peaceful countryside and towns.

We open and close with fracking wisdom from American biologist and activist Sandra Steingraber, recorded at the Chicago Bioneers meet-up in early November 2013. Sandra captures what fracking really is.
