What do citizens and policy makers need to know about fracking?

As I've written previously, this Wednesday and Thursday, I'll be participating in working group sessions and a public forum on Science, Democracy and Community Decisions on Fracking at UCLA Law School in Los Angeles, an event hosted by The Center for Science and Democracy at the Union of Concerned Scientists

I'll be joining over 60 experts from business, academia, NGOs, law, government, and the media in this important event.

I'll be participating on the event's Understanding the Regulatory Landscape panel.  I'm looking forward to a dynamic interaction and real dialogue about all of the complicated issues surrounding unconventional oil and gas development.  I hope it will serve to elevate the public discussion about the state of the science around hydraulic fracturing, the state and federal policy landscape, and what citizens and policy makers need to know to make informed decisions on oil and gas development that involves hydraulic fracturing.

  1. Yes it is very important if you are protesting a issue you must know the whole story of the issue this will make you make a quick decision.
    So you must consider this point.
