FrackingSENSE: What We Know, What We Don’t Know, and What We Hope to Learn about Natural Gas Development.
Susan Tierney, Unconventional Natural Gas: Trends, Opportunities, and Challenges with America’s New Energy Resource
The Center of the American West, CU Continuing Education, Boulder County, and the AirWaterGas Research Network invite you to a new lecture series. Beginning on February 26th, on Tuesday nights through May, a speaker with substantial expertise on natural gas development will provide a measured, honest exploration of this controversial topic. Each presenter will be scrupulous about acknowledging areas of uncertainty (“What We Don’t Know”), and emphasizing open questions that require careful deliberation. CU historian Patty Limerick will launch the series with a talk placing natural gas development in the history of Western American extractive industries. Throughout the series, Limerick will act as moderator. Recognizing that many members of the audience will hold strong opinions, they look forward to honest – and civil and respectful – discussions of a crucially important topic.
