Shale Gas


Cornell Experts to Dig Deep Into Impacts of Natural Gas Drilling

Cornell University - Anthony Ingraffea, professor in Cornell’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has studied fracking since 1982 and co-authored a controversial study warning that extracting natural gas could do more to aggravate global warming than mining coal.

He’ll discuss the process of fracking, with special attention to the weak points in engineering technology. Ingraffea will also examine new federal air pollution rules and proposed regulations guiding fracking operations on public lands.

Susan Christopherson, Cornell professor of city and regional planning, is an expert on regional economic development.

For the past three years she has directed research projects examining issues such as the boom-bust cycle of resource extraction and the potential “crowding out” of other industries in shale gas development regions.

Christopherson will also discuss her newly released research on community policy responses to fracking, and provide a socio-economic picture of communities in Pennsylvania and New York that have taken policy actions to control unconventional shale development.

Ingraffea and Christopherson are faculty fellows with Cornell’s David R. Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, the Congressional briefing sponsor.
