Michelle Bamberger and Robert Oswald, The Real Cost of Fracking: How America’s Shale Gas Boom is Threatening Our Families, Pets, and Food

In The Real Cost of Fracking, Michelle Bamberger, a veterinarian, and Robert Oswald, a pharmacologist, show how hydraulic fracturing endangers the environment and harms people, pets, and livestock. They reveal the harrowing experiences of small farmers who have lost their animals and their livelihoods and of rural families whose property values have plummeted as their towns have been invaded by drillers.

Michelle Bamberger is the author of two books on first aid for cats and dogs. Robert Oswald is a professor of molecular medicine at Cornell University. They serve on the advisory board of Physicians, Scientists, and Engineers of Healthy Energy.

Presented in partnership with Baltimore GreenWorks and Food and Water Watch Maryland.

The Ivy Bookshop will have copies of the authors' book for sale at a booksigning following the program.

Writers LIVE programs are supported in part by a generous gift from PNC Bank.
