Love to talk about hydraulic fracturing or just want to learn more?
Next month, StateImpact Pennsylvania partner station WHYY is co-hosting a discussion forum with the Bernard Wolfman Civil Discourse Project in Elkins Park, Montgomery County about the controversial extraction process known as “fracking.” The conversation will focus on the economic impact of natural gas development in Pennsylvania and the region. (For a primer, check out our report and this infographic on natural gas and Pennsylvania’s economy.)
Speakers at the forum include Deborah Lawrence Rogers, founder of consulting firm EnergyPolicyForum, and William Freeman, a former committee chairman of the Marcellus Shale Coalition, the state’s biggest gas industry trade group.
Here are the details:
