There has been considerable dispute recently concerning the issue of hydraulic fracturing (a.k.a. fracking) in the United States in general, and in eastern Ohio specifically. Your second essay will test your ability to analyze and compare arguments concerning the advisability of fracking in pursuit of the energy required to run our economy. Locate the dispute that arises from that issue, establish the source of the contention, analyze the arguments each side makes to support its view, decide which arguments are more compelling, discuss the merits of the evidence that supports those positions, and conclude by offering your view of which side most clearly makes its case. In your introduction, explain what fracking is, how it might benefit our economy, and the problems that might arise from exploiting this resource. End with a one-sentence thesis that declares the importance of making the right choice. The body of your paper must present the arguments each side makes and the evidence that side supplies in support of its positions. Use either subject-by-subject or point-by-point format to compare the evidence, depending on what you find. If there are a number of points in which a clear disagreement is expressed, use point-by-point. If the two sides seem to be talking past each other, subject-by-subject might work better. Your conclusion will review the most telling arguments each side makes and end by explaining which side, in your estimation, uses evidence most effectively to clarify the issue. Note well: You must have a minimum of four sources for each side of the issue, gathered from peer-reviewed journals available through the databanks available in Clark Memorial Library and authoritative sources from the web. 1500 words. As always, fully developed in-text citations, reference / works cited page, 12 pt TNR, double spaced, Office 2003 margins (1¼” left and right, 1” top and bottom). Follow the APA guidelines in LSH (pp. 158-91) to lay out your paper.
