Hear and see the exciting story of Jake and his frac crew as they explore America's shale fields.Fracing of the deep rock beneath our feet is revolutionizing energy production, power generation and global energy demand – in real time.
This is the story of the unconventional development of shale oil and gas deposits across the nation.This revolution has already reduced greenhouse gases by more than 450 million tons since 2005 through the subsitution of fraced natural gas for coal in electricity generation. Fracing has created nearly two million highly paid jobs, with the expectation of three million more by 2020. State and federal tax revenues from hydraulic fracturing have grown to $85 billion in 2012, expanding through $1 trllion by 2035. Fracing now represents more than 3% of the nation's GDP, as the revolution spreads to other industries. Fracing is putting America on the road towards energy independence, as crude oil imports have dropped by more than 40% from outside North America. Learn the frac story – the strengths and challenges this new world of energy presents to each of us.
