The facts and fiction about fracking will be considered at a community forum hosted by Lifetree Café at 7 p.m. CT on Monday, July 21.
The program, titled “To Frack or Not to Frack? An Informative Hour of Respectful Conversation,” features filmed interviews with both supporters and detractors of fracking.
“The U.S. is on its way to energy independence, thanks to hydraulic fracturing,” says Tisha Schuller, President of the Colorado Oil and Gas Association.
“I consider fracking one of the single greatest threats to our health and that of our environment,” says fracking activist Shane Davis. “I studied 1,000 spill reports, and 43 percent of them resulted in groundwater contamination.”
Community members will also have the opportunity to weigh in with their opinions.
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at 1602 U.S. Highway 98 in Mexico Beach across from El Governor Motel.
Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Gary Grubb at 334-806-5667 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
