Public Lecture on Fracking
On 14th January, LEC hosted a public lecture on shale gas, as part of the LEC-RGS NW Region joint seminar series. The speaker was Prof Mike Stephenson, Head of Science (Energy) at the British Geological Survey. Mike's talk focussed on explaining how shale gas was extracted, and the potential implications of fracking for ground water contamination and generation of earthquakes. The talk attracted an audience of over 200 people, a large number of those from the general public. The talk was followed by a question and answer session, and the video of the lecture has been made available on both the LEC (below) and RGS websites.Lecture
