Frackopoly: The Battle for the Future of Energy and the Environment will be in bookstores this Tuesday, June 7.

Fracking isn't new. Oil and gas industry influence isn't new. But do you ever wonder how we got into this mess?

Food & Water Watch Executive Director Wenonah Hauter's new book — Frackopoly: The Battle for the Future of Energy and the Environment — exposes the handful of corporations, financial institutions and individuals that have shaped the policies that keep us reliant on dirty energy sources. With the same forces in play, learning this history is critical to finally moving beyond fracking and fossil fuels.

Our current crisis is no accident. It took over 100 years for the oil and gas industry to accumulate the power they still wield today.

In a recent example, ExxonMobil’s own researchers were aware of the devastating climate impact of fossil fuel extraction and consumption in the late 1970s. Despite what it knew, ExxonMobil has spent $31 million since 1998 to fund climate-denier think tanks and politicians, while keeping its research out of the hands of the concerned public.

The good news: We've already seen that the growing grassroots movement can overcome the biggest and the baddest efforts of the dirty energy industry. Communities are fighting back, and in a big way — and it’s been nothing short of inspiring.

We put together this video to give a taste of what you’ll find in Frackopoly:

Take a look at the video, then sign the petition to stop the Frackopoly:

Thanks for taking action,
