Young people, perhaps more than any other age demographic, are skeptical of fracking, and the use of fossil fuels. This skepticism makes sense, because as children we were all taught that the world would soon be running out of fossil fuels, and that wind and solar provided must be pursued to provide the energy we need, and to improve the environment. However hydraulic fracturing has turned this paradigm on its head, and a need to educate the general public about the importance of the oil and gas industry has emerged.
In this edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Leo Huang, a student of petroleum engineering and a founding member of the Hydraulic Fracturing Public Awareness Committee (Frac PAC) and Heartland Institute Research Fellow Isaac Orr discuss what Frac PAC is, and how they are working to educate people about the oil and gas industry and make a positive impact on the surrounding community.
