Radioactivity explores the practice of fracking and its impact on the country. Rob Lorei interviews Richard Heinberg, senior fellow at the Post Carbon Institute. He has a new book out that looks at the natural gas industry' s practice of hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking. The book is titled Snake Oil: How Fracking' s False Promise of Plenty Imperils Our Future.

The show also discusses the backlog of judges awaiting confirmation to the federal bench. President Obama’s judicial nominees have been waiting far longer for a vote than other presidents’ nominees. The result is a backlog of cases that undermines our system of justice and makes it difficult for most Americans to have their cases heard in a timely manner. Rob speaks to guest, Josh Field who is the Deputy Director of Legal Progress at the Center for American Progress.
