Speaking at River Rally in Pittsburgh on May 31

I’ll be speaking at River Rally, the largest international gathering of water protection advocates, on Saturday, May 31, 2014, in Pittsburgh, PA. 

The Rally is co-hosted by River Network and Waterkeeper Alliance.

I’ll be a panelist at the plenary session, entitled Fracking: Impacts, Science, Advocacy, discussing the impacts of hydraulic fracturing on our waterways and economy, the science behind the process, and alternatives for becoming less reliant on fossil fuels. 

I’ll also be participating in one of the intensive discussion sessions immediately following the plenary, on Shale Gas & Oil Transport. We'll explore how the federal government and the states analyze the potential risk to communities and environmental health in allowing pipeline and compressor station placement in populated areas – as well as the pros/cons for alternatives.

I'm looking forward to being with people who do such important work.
