The Legacy of Fracking: From Earthquakes to Jessica Ernst

Join award-winning journalist and author Andrew Nikiforuk for a public presentation,

The Legacy of Fracking: From Earthquakes to Jessica Ernst 

based on his recent book Slick Water, a stunning examination of Big Oil and government abuse. Hydraulic fracturing is proven to cause water contamination, seismic activity, landscape industrialization and economic ruin. The harrowing experience of Jessica Ernst reveals how government and regulators flaunt the law to protect the powerful. 

Slick Water is the 2016 Science in Society Journalism Awards recipient and received honourable mention for the 15th annual Rachel Carson Book Award. Mr. Nikiforuk's previous book, Tar Sands, Dirty Oil and the Future of the Continent, received the 2009 Rachel Carson Book Award. Slick Water will be available for sale - $29.95.
