The Center of the American West takes as its mission the creation of forums for the respectful exchange of ideas and perspectives in the pursuit of solutions to the region's difficulties. We at the Center believe that an understanding of the historical origins of the West's problems, an emphasis on the common interests of all parties, and a dose of good humor are essential to constructive public discussion.

FrackingSENSE: What We Know, What We Don’t Know, and What We Hope to Learn about Natural Gas Development.

The Center of the American West, Boulder County, and the AirWaterGas Research Network invite you to a new lecture series. Beginning on February 26th, on Tuesday nights through May, a speaker with substantial expertise on natural gas development will provide a measured, honest exploration of this controversial topic. Each presenter will be scrupulous about acknowledging areas of uncertainty (“What We Don’t Know”), and emphasizing open questions that require careful deliberation. Throughout the series, CU historian Patty Limerick will act as moderator. Recognizing that many members of the audience will hold strong opinions, we look forward to honest – and civil and respectful – discussions of a crucially important topic.

The power point can be found here.
