In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, we listen in as Research Fellow Isaac Orr joins the Morning Martini show to discuss the politics and policies of hydraulic fracturing. Orr caught up with Morning Martini while attending the Wisconsin Conservative Action sideshow.
What has Wisconsin got to do with the fracking revolution? More than you might think. Even though the state has no reserves of oil or natural gas, it has something vital to the industry, sand. The sand used in fracking is a highly-specialized sand that is mined primarily in Wisconsin. Heartland Institute Research Fellow Isaac Orr and Nik Nelson, the Founder and CEO of OpenBox Strategies talk about fracking and frac sand mining on this podcast recorded at the Wisconsin Conservative Action Conference.
