California is on the precipice of ramping up fracking for dirty, carbon intensive shale oil. At the same time, we purport to be leading the fight against climate change. So Californians are rising up to say no to fracking, and nationwide, environmentalists and social justice advocates are rising up in record numbers to stop coal. At the same time, the 21st
century clean-energy revolution — embracing improved energy efficiency, solar and wind power, and electric vehicles — is gathering speed. What lies between? Can replacing coal with natural gas “bridge” the nation to clean energy? Can California frack for shale oil and fight climate change at the same time?
New data says “no fracking way.” Join renowned Dr. Anthony Ingraffea to discuss the threats posed by oil and gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing to our water, our air, and the global climate.
This event is free, but RSVP online. Doors open at 7, talk begins at 8.
