Learn about how a century of political meddling faciliated the control of energy systems by a handful of giant corporations and financial institutions in the book written by Wenonah Hauter.

A true tale of corruption and greed, Frackopoly exposes how a century of political meddling faciliated the control of our energy system by a handful of giant corporations and financial institutions. The book also examines the powerful and sometimes unlikely interests that have supported fracking.

But even amid such dire circumstances, author Wenonah Hauter is hopeful. Now more than ever, people are standing up to the fossil fuel industry and forcing action from elected leaders. Frackopoly chronicles the power generated by a growing grassroots movement that is not just fighting fracking, but reclaiming our democracy.
