Their family owned recreational business that hosts a water park, fishing lake and 100′s of camp sites would have a very difficult time surviving any significant spill, contamination or water shortage. At the same time, our family business could definitely benefit from the extra income that the Oil and Gas revolution in our area brings. Thomas believes that a balance can be found and families can experience the best of both worlds which is why he wrote “Meet The New Frackers: A Landowner's Guide For Successfully Navigating the Fast Moving Shale Energy Boom.” started meetthenewfrackers.com, and the newfracker.org non profit organization. Thomas R Clay wrote the book “Meet The New Frackers: A Landowner's Guide For Successfully Navigating the Fast Moving Shale Energy Boom.” because as he said “There is a shortage of qualified oil and gas attorneys and other specialists available to help landowners. The Oil and Gas companies have experts on their team and so should the landowners.”
“Reading this book was an inspiration to me in the way that Thomas R. Clay presented the information about how to make a game plan for dealing with mineral ownership. But more importantly, I enjoyed the manner that he incorporated maintaining a positive healthy lifestyle and mental attitude into the landowners informational handbook. His emphasis on living stress free and having a positive outlook while building a strategy to maximize one's mineral ownership gives an interesting twist to the oil and gas boom subject. This book is definitely a must have for any landowner especially for anyone living within one of the oil and gas shale plays. Thomas’s explanation of fracking was especially informative and sheds light on a much needed subject. All in all "Meet the New Frackers" is an impressive undertaking and should prove helpful to everyone who reads it.” J. Pittman

“Don't let the word "Landowner's" in the title fool you -- this is far more than a book for landowners. I was blown away by the well-rounded discussion the author brought to the table on the topic of fracking. As a citizen of the U.S. concerned for the environment as well as our deep dependence on middle east oil, I found myself completely engrossed in the discussion of fracking from all angles. The author speaks clearly, honestly and fairly as he looks at fracking from the standpoint of the landowner, the oil and gas industry, the regulatory side, the side of the environment and those of us watching this growing industry with interest. I learned so much about this contemporary hot topic and now feel well-prepared to discuss with anyone the current issues surrounding fracking, as well as the misunderstandings and misinformation that are being widely circulated. Thank you, Mr. Clay, for this in-depth, well-rounded primer on fracking, and for leading the charge in the movement to give fracking its chance to shine within the confines of an environmentally conscious climate.” M.L.
