The damage human has made to the ecological environment, such as soil erosion, land desertification, land salinization, biodiversity reduction, has seriously done harm to the ecological balance. This paper takes the American shale revolution as the research object and further study the American shale revolution from the perspective of Marxist’s ecological theory.
