Hydro-Fracking For Natural Gas

Thursday, Apr 15, 2010

Has America found the "green ticket" to support our energy needs and reduce our dependency on foreign oil? Hydraulic fracturing, known as fracking, is a practice where drilling companies use a mixture of sand, water, and chemicals to "fracture" the rocks situated deep beneath the earth's surface in order to extract trapped natural gas. While drilling and fracking have been around for nearly 60 years, the verdict is definitely out on how the technological advances, coupled with exemptions from environmental regulations, will impact local communities ranging from rural areas in the Catskills to farms in Pennsylvania and the water supply in Texas.

Speakers: Dr. Theo Colborn, Dr. Michel Boufadel, Professor Albert Appleton and Professor Kevin Bone

Date: Thursday, April 15th, 6:30 PM

Location: The Cooper Union, 7 East 7th Street, between 3rd & 4th Avenues
