Since 2008, Abrahm Lustgarten has reported for ProPublica on the environmental threats posed by gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing in communities nationwide. He won the George Polk Award for his coverage in 2010, one of the most prestigious prizes in environmental journalism.

In this episode of High Country Views, Cally Carswell talks with Lustgarten about new research into the relationship between fracking and water contamination, the difficulty of drawing causal connections between the two, and whether the oil and gas industry can be trusted -- as it currently is in most states -- to use drilling practices that robustly safeguard public health.
