    What happens when natural gas drilling moves into an urban area: how communities in North Texas responded to the environmental and health threats of fracking. When natural gas drilling moves into an urban or a suburban neighborhood, a two-hundred-foot-high drill appears on the other side of a back yard fence and diesel trucks clog a quiet two-lane residential street.   The Birth Of Modern Fracking. The very first improvement on fracking didn't occur until the s, when drillers used a non-explosive liquid substitute called acid, instead of nitroglycerin. This Author: John Manfreda.   The best parts of the book are the author’s handy and efficient summations of the long-standing oil and gas culture of Texas, the conflicts stemming from the state’s mineral and surface rights laws, the tangled mess of regulatory agencies with hazy authority over issues of concern, the day-to-day operations at a natural gas site, and the Author: Jessica Smartt Gullion.
