UP TO HEAVEN AND DOWN TO HELL:FRACKING IN PENNSYLVANIA
An Environmental Justice Program, sponsored by the Main Line Unitarian Church
Thursday December 3, 2020, At 7:00 PM Via Zoom.
Shale gas extraction, or “fracking”—once portrayed as an energy revolution to transform
the American economy and geopolitics—is now mired in controversy. But in greater
Williamsport, Pennsylvania, and around the Commonwealth, fracking is personal.
Colin Jerolmack, Chairman of the Environmental Studies department, New York
University, spent eight months living with rural communities outside of Williamsport as
neighbors confronted the unique opportunities—and sometimes heartbreaking
pitfalls—associated with fracking. He shares his research discoveries in this talk, and in
a forthcoming book, Up to Heaven and Down to Hell: Fracking, Freedom and
Community in an American Town (Princeton University, Spring 2021).
