Andrew Nikiforuk’s Nova Scotia Tour by Greystone Books, September 15, 2016
Join award-winning journalist and author Andrew Nikiforuk for a presentation – The Legacy of Fracking: From Earthquakes to Jessica Ernst – based on his recent book Slick Water, a stunning examination of fossil fuel industry and government abuse.
Hydraulic fracturing, a highly disruptive technology, has been presented as a novel innovation and economic boom. But scientific evidence tells a different story of water contamination, seismic activity, landscape industrialization and economic ruin. The harrowing experience of Jessica Ernst further illustrates how government and regulators flaunt the law to protect a powerful industry and its dangerous technology.
