FRACKING DEBATE: Is the Fracking Boom Doing More Harm Than Good?
Tonight at 9 p.m. EST, Earthjustice Managing Attorney Deborah Goldberg joins Kate Hudson of Riverkeeper to debate New York Times columnist Joe Nocera and former Department of Energy Assistant Secretary Susan Tierney in a nationally broadcasted event presented by Intelligence Squared in partnership with the Aspen Ideas Festival.
The debate, No Fracking Way: The Natural Gas Boom is Doing More Harm Than Good, is based on the traditional Oxford-style format. Before the debate begins, the audience votes based on their opinion. After the debate concludes, the audience delivers the final verdict by voting again whether they are for, against or undecided on the proposition. The winner is determined by which team swayed more audience members.
