The Frack Files: A freely downloadable guide to fracking

At New Internationalist magazine, where I work, the editors have decided to give away the whole centre section of this month’s magazine as a PDF.

The Frack Files is a guide to fracking for concerned citizens, environmental activists and people who are just curious what all the fuss is about. You can download the Frack Files PDF over on the New Internationalist site, or just read it below. Enjoy.

It appears you don’t have a PDF plugin. You can still download The Fracking Files PDF, though
