WATCH FRACKING DEBATE—Does Hydrofracking Do More Harm Than Good?

Campbell Public Affairs Institute

On Nov. 30, the Campbell Public Affairs Institute hosted a debate on hydrofracking in the Maxwell Auditorium on the Syracuse University campus.

The proposition that was argued was:  “This Assembly Believes Hydrofracking Does More Harm Than Good.”

Watch the archived debate here:

Speaking in favor of the proposition was Paul Gallay, president of Hudson Riverkeeper, and Robert Howarth, the David R. Atkinson professor of Ecology and Environmental Biology at Cornell University.

Speaking against the proposition was Edward Hinchey, professional geologist and independent consultant, and Tim Whitesell, supervisor, Town of Binghamton, and president of New York Association of Towns.

The debate provided opportunities for lively direct exchange among the speakers, as well as questions and brief points from the audience.
