What the Frac?


Are pro-fracking and no-fracking our only options? Must fracking have adverse environmental consequences? On April 9, join faculty and recognized experts in a multi-campus discussion on the controversies surrounding hydrofracking in New York. Navigate the science, economics, regulations, ethics, and environmental consequences at WTF? (What the Frac?) A Pace Community Forum on Hydraulic Fracturing. The forum will help advance critical thinking of natural gas extraction policies in the U.S., while addressing key questions about the role of a university in such highly controversial issues. How can these timely, yet fast-moving and complex environmental challenges be used as a learning experience for students? Co-sponsored by the Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies, Project Pericles, Pace Energy and Climate Center, and the Pace Institute for Environmental and Regional Studies. RSVP online at www.pace.edu/paaes/events.
