A panel discussion about the social and environmental effects of
hydraulic fracturing for natural gas will be led by renowned NY professor and author of the book, “Ecology and Socialism”, Chris Williams.
Chris will discuss the place that fracking plays within the broader political environment as well as how it acts in the economic context of fossil fuels, capitalism and climate change/the ecological crisis.
Peter Wampler, associate professor of Geology at GVSU, will discuss the vital, more scientific context of fracking, such as how it plays a part in retrieving natural gas, what are the possible side effects of it and so forth.
Please join us for this LIB 100 approved, engaging discussion about one of the most controversial environmental practices of our time. This will be taking place in 103 Loutit Lecture Hall in Henry Hall. Email the GVSU Student Environmental Coaltion at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Hope to see you there! :)
