Han­nah Guzik is an inves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ist who writes about health and the envi­ron­ment. She lives in Ven­tu­ra, Cal­i­for­nia. Guzik became inter­est­ed in frack­ing and its pos­si­ble health effects after dis­cov­er­ing that there are frack­ing fields not far from where she grew up in Ven­tu­ra Coun­ty, adja­cent to the Los Padres Nation­al For­est and near a pro­tect­ed refuge for Cal­i­for­nia con­dors. She was sur­prised to dis­cov­er the frack­ing occur­ring in her community’s back­yard, and con­cerned that the extent of frack­ing in Cal­i­for­nia was not pub­lic knowledge.
