The award-winning online journalism site ProPublica is co-sponsoring what it calls an "in-depth conversation" on fracking in April.
ProPublica writes: "On Monday, April 9, ProPublica and the Tenement Museum will co-sponsor an in-depth conversation about fracking. A panel featuring representatives from the media, the drilling industry, a former state regulator and an environmental lawyer will discuss whether the process is the answer to America’s energy needs, or whether we should slow down and learn more about the potential environmental effects of hydraulic fracturing."
