Updates From The Frack Zone

Here are some updates from my reporting on the gas industry over at Beacon Reader.

Last week, I was the very first! anyone to report on Judge Marc Lovecchio overturning a local zoning board’s decision to allow a fracking well owned by Inflection Energy. Here’s my story on the decision.

Later in the week, I followed up by asking neighbors about what they thought of the decision. Here’s that story.

Last Saturday, I attended the PA Energy Games in Hughesville, a strange little event put on by gas industry boosters. Here’s what I saw there.

Finally, I got around to writing about seeing a Halliburton pickup truck at a music festival back in July. Here’s the rather ethereal piece that came out after much marination.

If you find my work worthwhile (and I do!), do consider subscribing over at my project page on Beacon or kick me a few bucks on the “help this poor writer some more” button at the end of every story. Or check out the “wish list” mostly full of books I’ve embedded on the sidebar to the left – I needs to read to write.

Or you can keep reading for free via social media links (@jdbrokaw) – I understand, I’m a cheapskate, too.
