The Marcellus Shale Boom: Who wins, who loses?
Juliana Stricklen and Dennis Childers, Guests
Wednesday, 14 July 2010, 7:30PM to 9:00 PM
|Prof. Tony Ingraffea, Cornell University|
Many of us would like to better understand what is really happening with the Marcellus Shale. We’d like to know what the City and County are intending to do about the possibility of drilling right here… since leases are already being signed.
Juliana Stricklen, a Creative and Performing Arts High School Senior, received a $1,000 award for a video she created on the Marcellus problem. It’s great! We’ve invited her and her teacher, Dennis Childers, to show the video and discuss the issues. We’ll also have current updates on State and local regulations and concerns about the Marcellus development. This is the biggest environmental threat in the last century in Pennsylvania and worthy of your attention. We will also show part of Cornell University Prof. Tony Ingraffea’s excellent tutorial on the Marcellus issues. This will be a hot event!
The office is on the second floor of a building that can be entered either at 3875 Bigelow Blvd or 425 Craig St., in Suite 202. Ring the buzzer at the door; when you are buzzed in, take the elevator to the second floor and follow the signs to the Club office. I personally prefer entering from Bigelow since on-street parking is easier.
August topic: the movie FRESH and more about Buy Fresh, Buy local and Urban Farming.
Interesting goodies and finger foods. Bring your own to share if you care to.
