Book Description

Over roughly the past decade, oil and gas production in the United States has surged dramatically--thanks largely to technological advances such as high-volume hydraulic fracturing, more commonly known as fracking. This rapid increase has generated widespread debate, with proponents touting economic and energy-security benefits and opponents highlighting the environmental and social risks of increased oil and gas production. Despite the heated debate, neither side has a monopoly on the facts. In this book, Daniel Raimi gives a balanced and accessible view of oil and gas development, clearly and thoroughly explaining the key issues surrounding the shale revolution.

The Fracking Debate directly addresses the most common questions and concerns associated with fracking: What is fracking? Does fracking pollute the water supply? Will fracking make the United States energy independent? Does fracking cause earthquakes? How is fracking regulated? Is fracking good for the economy? Coupling a deep understanding of the scholarly research with lessons from his travels to every major U.S. oil- and gas-producing region, Raimi highlights stories of the people and communities affected by the shale revolution, for better and for worse. The Fracking Debate provides the evidence and context that have so frequently been missing from the national discussion of the future of oil and gas production, offering readers the tools to make sense of this critical issue.

Author Bio

Daniel Raimi is a Fellow at Resources for the Future and a lecturer at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan. He works on a range of energy policy issues with a focus on tools to enable an equitable energy transition. 

He has published in academic journals including Science, Science Advances, Environmental Science and Technology, Journal of Economic Perspectives, Energy Research and Social Science, and Energy Policy, popular outlets including The New Republic, Newsweek, Slate, and Fortune, and presented his research for policymakers, industry and other stakeholders around the United States and internationally, including before the Energy and Mineral Resources Subcommittee of the US House's Natural Resources Committee. 

The Fracking Debate, his first book, combines stories from his travels to dozens of oil and gas producing regions with a detailed examination of key policy issues, and is published by Columbia University Press as part of the Columbia University Center on Global Energy Policy book series (www.thefrackingdebate.com).

He also co-hosts Resources Radio, a weekly podcast from Resources for the Future, in which he interviews leading researchers on energy and environmental topics.

He received his master’s degree in public policy from Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy and his bachelor’s degree in music from Wesleyan University. Prior to entering graduate school at Duke, Raimi worked as a guitarist, composer, and music instructor in New York and Los Angeles. In his spare time, he still plays music (mostly jazz and bluegrass), cooks, plays tennis, and spends time with family. He lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with his wife and son.
