Understanding Fracking: Catholic News Service series

 

Dennis Sadowski, staff writer for Catholic News Service, has completed a series of articles on hydraulic fracking from a faith-based perspective. “As you might imagine, it was a complicated issue to examine,” he said.

Nevertheless, Sadowski provides a clear overview of this controversial energy source while blending in environmental justice teachings of the Church.
