NTREG: Sharon Wilson on Fracking in North Texas
February 8 , 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Presenter is Sharon Wilson, a senior organizer at the EarthWorks Oil & Gas Accountability Project. Sharon worked for 12 years as a data manager in the oil and gas industry. But when the Halliburton-developed drilling technology of “fracking” or hydraulic fracturing unlocked a “Saudi Arabia of natural gas” just beneath North Texas, she turned her back on that industry and became Texas’ number 1 anti-fracking activist.
Sharon has briefed NATO Parliamentary Assembly, EPA regulators and even former EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy on the impacts of oil and gas extraction. In 2014, she became a certified optical gas imaging thermographer and now travels across the U.S. making visible the invisible methane pollution from oil and gas facilities.
Join us for a stunning look into the disastrous world of fracking and the damage it has caused to the air quality and groundwater in North Texas.
