Fracking- the process of extracting natural gas from deep below the Earth’s surface- is one of the most hotly debated but least understood practices. As the state’s politicians weigh the pros and cons of introducing fracking to the North Carolina, experts present their findings. What are the environmental, economic and political factors surrounding this controversial topic?
