Here is my latest oped. It's currently running in the Lock Haven newspaper. It was sent to several mid-sized newspapers in "fracking country" at the same time, so it might appear in other papers as well.
While many things here are controversial, one is not. Fracking has had a positive impact on the economy and has decreased the unemployment rate in the United States. What hasn't been considered, however, is that fracking changed the result of the 2012 presidential election.
