April 27 the Lansing Gas Drilling Committee is presenting an educational forum with 2 speakers at All Saints Church in Lansing at 7pm.
347 Ridge Road Lansing, NY 14882
Deborah Rogers will be speaking on the economics of shale gas. She is a financial analyst, who lives in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, where the first widespread use of high volume hydrofracturing for shale gas was used (in the Barnett Shale). The results here are not what the gas companies had promised, and Deborah has done an excellent job of documenting what has happened. This talk is well worth listening to no matter what side of the issue you are on. She has an informative website at:
After Rogers presentation, Dr. Sandra Steingraber, an award winning author, will speak about environmental health issues related to gas development. She is an eloquent speaker and the recent recipient of the Heinz Award for her work related to environmental health writing.
Please come join us for a very informative evening. Both speakers are well worth seeing. Please contact others and encourage them to come also.
