Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society (DOAS)

Established in 1968 – A Chapter of the National Audubon Society since 1970

Anthony Ingraffea to speak on Thursday, May 30 – 7pm at Foothills

Information about Hydrofracking
Anthony Ingraffea speaks on Thursday May 30 at 7:00 in  the Performing Arts Center on Market Street, Oneonta.  Enter in the west part of the building (Not the glass atrium).  Dr. Igraffea is a professor at Cornell University and has done research on “Rock Mechanics” for many years (before hydrofracking became an issue) and is an expert in the field of rock behavior under pressure.  Hydrofracking is definitely related to rock mechanics.
Dr Ingraffea will NOT tell you what is good or bad about hydrofracking, but will update you on the latest information from his studies. His goal is to inform you as a Professor not as a promoter.   He is not associated with an oil company nor a land owners organization. Although  he is an engineer he will give you a clear presentation – and not a highly technical talk. Most of us wish make decisions base on the facts.  His talk will help explain some of the question you may have about hydrofracking and may raised some you have not thought about. This is not a pro or con hydrofracking talk- but a rational informational presentation.
Otsego 2000 in Cooperstown is sponsoring his talk as a public service to the people in Otsego County.
