Mediating Controversy

March 21, 2011

On February 28th, member of Marcellus Shale Team Kelly Cronin hiked out to Ithaca High School to present on the Marcellus Shale. Members of the high school government classes were presented first with Kelly’s presentation, an unbiased account of the science of Marcellus Shale gas drilling in the midst of future full of new energies.

The classes were also presented with an environmental activist’s account of Marcellus Shale gas drilling, and a pro-drilling presentation. The hope is that members of the government class begin to understand that every issue is multifaceted, has pros and cons associated with it, and that to make informed decisions requires listening to all sides of an issue.

This is the 3rd time PRI’s Marcellus Shale Team has teamed up with IHS to have a conversation with their classes. It’s been a lot of fun for all of us here!
