Agriculture and Fracking

Panel Discussion | September 22 | 4-6 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, 310 Banatao Auditorium


Berkeley Food Institute


As the process of capturing oil and natural gas through hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” expands nationally, it has come under fire for its impact on water quality and quantity, energy use, and climate change. Less explored, however, are the impacts of fracking on agriculture, the American food system, and public health. This panel will examine the direct and indirect impacts of fracking on......   More >
