Book Talk: The Fracking Debate

Wednesday, March 14, 2018 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm
Student Commons Building, Room #2500, 1201 Larimer Street, Denver

The Fracking Debate directly addresses the most common questions and concerns associated with fracking: What is it? Does fracking pollute the water supply? Will fracking make the United States energy independent? Does fracking cause earthquakes? How is fracking regulated? Is fracking good for the economy?

 Written by Daniel Raimi, a senior research associate at Resources for the Future, the book couples a deep understanding of scholarly research with lessons from his travels to every major U.S. oil and gas producing region. Raimi highlights stories of the people and communities affected by the shale revolution for better and worse. 

Please join us as we host Daniel Raimi to learn more about the fundamentals of fracking and partake in an engaging discussion about the risks, benefits and uncertainties of the Shale Revolution in the United States. 

Admission is free, but space is limited! Light refreshments will be served. Register now!
