A Frank Discusson about Fracking, Without all the Fracas...
Join us Thursday, April 17, at 7:30 p.m. to experience a respectful dialogue among leading experts about the controversial use of hydraulic fracturing –fracking—with an emphasis on its economic impact in Pennsylvania and surrounding states.
William Freeman, founder of Freeman Astor and past chair of the Natural Gas Use Committee of the Marcellus Shale Coalition and Deborah Lawrence Rogers, founder and director of EnergyPolicyForum, will provide insight into the economics of fracking from pro- and anti-fracking perspectives. Chris Satullo, vice president for news and civic dialogue at WHYY/NewsWorks Philadelphia and co-founder and co-director of the University of Pennsylvania's Penn Project for Civic Engagement, will moderate.
With an emphasis on productive conversation – not debate– this forum will offer you the chance to learn new things and question your own beliefs, while sending you home with concrete opportunities to take meaningful action.
