Presented by Joseph Henderson
PhD candidate, teaching and curriculum

What is hydrofracture gas drilling and how might it impact the Rochester area? We first explore the scientific background of this technology and then place it within larger social and environmental contexts. We will also examine the educational dimensions of this controversial energy production method and how we might begin to think holistically about such environmental issues in the future.
