When Fracking Comes to Town
This presentation is by Cal Tillman, former mayor of Dish, Texas, and featured in the movie Gasland. Through his personal story, he shows the connection between unconventional, slick water, deep shale horizontal fracking, and the degradation of living conditions that eventually force him to move his family away from Dish to protect their health.
Northern Michigan is the next target for intense development of the Utica Collingwood Shale by the oil and gas industry.
This presentation was made at Harbor Springs High School in Harbor Springs, Michigan.
Don't Frack Michigan was the sponsor of the presentation. They seek a ban of fracking of this type.
