Science Cafe: The Future of Fracking In Michigan

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Conor O'Neill's Traditional Irish Pub, 318 S. Main St., Ann Arbor

How does "fracking", or high volume hydraulic fracturing, really work? What are the public concerns, potential hazards and risks? What is the potential for growth of this industry in Michigan? 

Please join UMBS Director Knute Nadelhoffer, along with Brian Ellis and Kim Wolske, U-M authors of a new set of technical reports on fracking, for a discussion of these questions and of what public policies might be prudent to protect our environment, our health, and our invaluable freshwater resources in the Great Lakes Region.

Science Cafés provide an opportunity for audiences to discuss current science topics with experts in an informal setting. All Science Cafés take place at Conor O'Neill's Traditional Irish Pub, 318 South Main Street, Ann Arbor. Hors d'oeuvres at 5:30 pm; program 6-7:30 pm.
