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.
Watch the live stream below:
Here are two videos Earthjustice produced to help educate people on the fracking issue:

Nearing the Brink<p>Since <a href="https://climatenewsnetwork.net/abundant-fish-need-cool-seas-and-protection/" target="_blank">fish in the temperate zones already experience a wide variation</a> in seasonal water temperatures, it hasn't been obvious why species such as <a href="https://climatenewsnetwork.net/sardines-swim-into-northern-waters-to-keep-cool/" target="_blank">cod have shifted nearer the Arctic, and sardines have migrated to the North Sea</a>.</p><p>But <a href="https://climatenewsnetwork.net/ocean-warming-spurs-marine-life-to-rapid-migration/" target="_blank">marine creatures are on the move</a>, and although there are other factors at work, including overfishing and <a href="https://climatenewsnetwork.net/fish-cant-smell-well-in-more-acidic-seas/" target="_blank">the increasingly alarming changes in ocean chemistry</a>, thanks to ever-higher levels of dissolved carbon dioxide, temperature change is part of the problem.</p><p>The latest answer, Dr Dahlke and his colleagues report in the journal <a href="https://science.sciencemag.org/cgi/doi/10.1126/science.aaz3658" target="_blank">Science</a>, is that many fish may already be living near the limits of their thermal tolerance.</p><p>The temperature safety margins during the moments of spawning and embryo might be very precise, and over hundreds of thousands of years of evolution, marine and freshwater species have worked out just what is best for the next generation. Rapid global warming upsets this equilibrium.</p>
