BookFrackopoly  by Wenonah Hauter
65
Fossil Resistance
Book
A Field Philosophers Guide to Fracking" by Adam Briggle.
It's the non-fiction story of how a relatively small town (Denton, TX) stood up to the fossil fuel industry. It's funny enough to stay interesting, provides a lot of useful tips, and lays out the ethical case for why it's worth doing. I've given several copies of the book away to friends, and also an elected official or two.
