Please in My Backyard: Quiet Mobilization in Support of Fracking

Embed Cite Participate

Colin Jerolmack and Edward T. Walker discuss how a rural, white, mixed-income Pennsylvania community adopted a please-in-my-backyard stance toward shale gas extraction (fracking). Residents invited development on their land and supported it through quiet mobilization. While landowners prioritized benefits over risks, economics cannot fully explain their enthusiasm.
