From a press release from the Bucknell Environmental Center:
Presentation – “Guinea Pigs Atop the Marcellus Shale”
8 – 9:30 pm on Monday, May 2nd at the Union County Government Center, 155 North 15th Street in Lewisburg.
The event is free and open to the public.
Barbara Jarmoska, who serves on the Board of Directors of the Responsible Drilling Alliance (RDA), a grassroots organization based in Williamsport, will be the speaker. RDA is an education and advocacy coalition seeking to educate the public about the truth and consequences of deep shale gas drilling. (www.responsibledrillingalliance.org). Jarmoska states, “After receiving numerous requests from colleges,
civic groups and organizations asking for someone to come and speak on the topic of gas drilling, I sought the help of local photographers tocreate this slide presentation. It is my hope that this talk will help
people to realize the gravity and scope of what is happening to Pennsylvania as our farm and forest lands are transformed intoindustrial landscapes by multinational energy companies who have moved
in to stake their claim to the gas that lies a mile below the land on which we live, work and play.”
