What the Frack? Part 1: New York – Thursday, February 21st @ 6 pm
Join us at the Bernhard Center, Room 212
Students for a Sustainable Earth and the Kalamazoo Peace Center are proud to be hosting environmental organizer Lauren Swaddell for an educational event about Horizontal Hydraulic Fracturing. This highly controversial method of extracting natural gas is practiced in Wyoming, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and is now coming to Michigan.
This presentation will explain the process and how it has affected people and land in upstate New York while also covering extreme extraction methods such as arctic and deep water drilling. Members of Shale Shock will be hosting a training on coalition building the day following this event.
