EARTH MONTH: Fracking and Our Water

April 1, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Co-presented with the Hammer Museum at UCLA

Fracking is both demonized and praised almost daily in the media, leaving most Americans confused. We strive to bring some clarity to this divisive issue by bringing together scientists and policy makers to tease out the facts about the effects of hydraulic fracturing on the quality and quantity of the nation’s water. Panelists: Jonathan Bishop, California State Water Resources Control Board; water treat­ment engineer Subir Bhattacharjee; Stanford environmental scientist Robert Jackson; and Damon Nagami, director of the Southern California Ecosystems Project at the NRDC. Moderated by Mark Gold, acting director, UCLA Institute of Environment and Sustainability
