A conversation with freelance journalist, Dimiter Kenarov
Free and open to the public.

"Shale Gas: From Poland to Pennsylvania" is a new project that will focus on a commodity called “a game changer,” promoted as a cleaner fossil alternative to coal and oil and cheered as the next step toward the American dream of energy independence. Poland is now Europe's center of shale gas. Like Pennsylvania, it embraces the promises and dangers of extraction. At the center of debate: hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, and an associated largely unexplored question of global politics.
