Groundswell: Hydrofracking in NYS

  • Aired: 02/06/2012
  • 56:46
  • Rating: NR
An ecological threat. An economic development engine. Hydrofracking has been called both. As New York sets the ground rules for this controversial energy reality, we explore the issues exclusive to the state, including the flashpoint of the Hydrofracking debate: home rule versus pre-emption. This is the first presentation of WCNY's Vista Series.
