About Dr. Ingraffea
As a scientist and engineer, Dr. Ingraffea is not only one of the leading experts on hydraulic fracturing and unconventional oil and gas development, he is also a concerned citizen who works tirelessly to inform the public about the health and safety risks. Once an industry insider, he is now one of the most vocal opponents of fracking and uses clear and irrefutable science to show the devastating impacts - from the chewed up landscapes, to the water contamination and leaking wells, to the toxic waste products and earthquakes. Dr. Ingraffea is perhaps best known for co-authoring a 2011 study that showed the tremendously high global warming impact of fracking.

Oil and gas development in the Yukon
Dr. Ingraffea will be customizing his lecture to the Yukon situation and the special concerns we should have about unconventional fossil fuel extraction being introduced in the North. 

Yukoners Concerned will also provide a short overview of the status of oil and gas exploration in the Yukon, and the different areas where government and industry are pushing to drill and frack. 
Watch a TED talk from Dr. Ingraffea
Jurisdictions across the world are banning fracking, from countries such as France and Scotland, to states such as New York and Maryland, to Canadian provinces like Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Over 8,000 Yukoners have signed a petition to keep the Yukon frack-free, and we need your support to keep up the pressure for a complete ban on fracking, especially with an upcoming territorial election.

Please join us for this presentation to understand the science behind unconventional oil and gas development and the reasons why fracking would be bad for Yukoners and our environment.
