Today we hear from American biologist and author Sandra Steingraber, giving the keynote address to the Permanent People’s Tribunal Session on Human Rights, Fracking and Climate Change.

Sandra takes a lyrical look at the interconnections between molecules, organisms, ecosystems, logistics and capitalism in the story of fracking.
