About This Project
Opinions about unconventional oil/gas development (aka 'hydraulic fracturing' or 'fracking') are shaped by who we are (e.g., political ideology) and where we live (e.g., local employment in the energy sector). Those who live closer to such development also tend to be more supportive. However, we know little about how proximity to other types of energy development (e.g., pipelines, wind turbines) shapes opinions about fracking. This the goal of our project.
