Professor Anthony R. Ingraffea

(Engineer, FractureExpert, Cornell University)

Dr. Ingraffea opposes the large scale industrialization of the country-
side required for shale gas extraction. He has given many presenta-
tions around the Northeast explaining the harmful impacts the pro-
posed hydraulic fracturing technology will have.

Professor Donald Siegel
(Hydrogeologist, Syracuse University)

Dr. Siegel is a proponent of shale gas extraction and has appeared in
many industry television ads stating his support of this technology. He
categorizes the views of gas drilling opponents as “irrational fears.”Don’t miss this chanceto hear both sides on a topic that will affect us all!
