Event description

Description


Dr Drew Hubbell lived in Pennsylvania for 15 years, ground zero for fracking in the United States.

While there are differences between WA and Pennsylvania, many of the threats are still the same. Dr Hubbell is concerned that there is a lack of knowledge in WA about what the industry has done - what its business model is.

In his talk, he will share what he saw and experienced in the US, and compare that to what is being proposed for the Perth Basin.
