Benefits of Hydraulic Fracturing

Since 2005, CO2 emissions have fallen over 10% in the U.S. - down to 1992 levels. Replacing coal with natural gas has greatly depleted the amount of carbon dioxide and other pollutants released into the atmosphere, and natural gas is increased supply has caused its price to fall.

Structured Video-Based Education

Coming soon: We’ll organize the video library to provide a structured journey through the world of energy, which academic, professional and government users can tailor to their learning and experience levels. This will eventually include an accredited video-based course for university and upper level high school students.


Outreach & Viewer Participation

Coming soon: We're expanding our outreach programs to better connect with viewers, assist educators in getting more from our materials, and encourage students and general users to participate in productive energy discussions. We’ll do this through targeted social media marketing, an improved and expanded newsletter campaign, university partnerships and educator-led student work groups.

Stay In Touch

We are committed to inspire the public to learn about energy, engage in informed conversations, and make smart decisions about our global energy future.
