Frackonomics: Debunking the Financial Myths of Shale Gas & Embracing a Green Energy Future

Cost: $10 donation

United for Action and several co-sponsors will be holding a panel discussion with Financial Analyst Deborah Rogers, Economist Jannette Barth, and former DEP Commissioner Al Appleton to discuss the downsides of shale gas development from an economic and financial standpoint and will additionally be exploring the potential for green energy for New York State.

You may have seen Deborah Rogers mentioned in the latest issue of Rolling Stone Magazine and also read Rolling Stone's response to Chesapeake Energy debunking some of the myths being touted by the Oil and Gas Industry.

This presentation promises to further that discussion and will undoubtedly bring new things to light.

We hope you can make it. Please share with your friends, far and wide. This is an 800 seat space, so there’s room for everyone.

Thanks so much! David, Ling, Owen, Charlie, Beth, Dave, and the rest of the Team
