Fracking in a Flyover State: The Politics of Oil in the Grassland Prairies

Mar 6, 2017, 11:30 am-1:00 pm EST
Weill Hall, Betty Ford Classroom (1110)

Overlapping with these natural resources is also a grasslands biome - one of the largest areas of grasslands in Canada and the US, which contains breeding grounds for millions of birds. How local residents understand the landscape is crucial to making fair and adequate policy to protect the ecosystem and the economy. This talk examines how landowners grapple with economic, environmental, and social trade-offs when making decisions about land-use.
