Fracking and the Future of Global Energy: Golden Age or Dark Age?

As the debate about extracting natural gas from the Marcellus Shale continues, Tom Wilber, author of Under the Surface, and Seamus McGraw, author of End of Country, will offer their perspectives as writers tracking the issue at regional, national, and international levels. Led by moderator, Professor Wendy Wolford of the Atkinson Center, Wilber and McGraw will discuss their ongoing coverage of the ever-changing situation regarding shale gas development in the Twin Tier region, and they will consider our regional situation in the larger context of our global energy future. Professor Jeff Tester of the Atkinson Center will introduce the speakers.

Co-sponsored by the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future and Cornell University Press.
