Dr. John Cherry, hydrogeologist : “Hydraulic Fracturing: Should Nova Scotia Experiment?”

Cherry will focus on the many scientific uncertainties that still exist around fracking, and the need for substantial research to be done before any province embarks on development of shale gas.  “The science concerning most of the important impact questions is very immature,” Cherry states. “The research needed to address these questions has still not begun in any substantial way.”

Dr. Cherry was lead author of the Council of Canadian Academies 2014 report, Environmental Impacts of Shale Gas Extraction in Canada. He presently heads the University Consortium for Field-Focused Groundwater Contamination Research and is Associate Director of the G-360 Centre for Applied Groundwater Research based at University of Guelph.

The talk will take place at Kings College New Academic Building at 7 pm (7:30pm Newfoundland). Admission is free.
