Friends of the Earth are delighted to be hosting an event on Fracking on Monday the 11th of March with Canadian scientist Jessica Ernst.

The event will take place at 6.30pm in the Smock Alley Theatre, on Exchange St, Dublin 2. You can book you place for this free event here. We are delighted to be co-hosting this talk with No Fracking Dublin and Afri. Jessica, a 55-year-old Canadian scientist with 30 years oil and gas industry experience, is suing the Alberta government and gas producer EnCana for unlawful activities related to hydraulic fracturing. She is in Ireland on a speaking tour that includes visits to areas that will be potentially affected by fracking in the North and West of the country.

Jessica’s presentation is a thorough and shocking story of regulators failure to protect health and the environment. Her lawsuit methodically details how Alberta’s two key groundwater regulators, Alberta Environment and the ERCB, “failed to follow the investigation and enforcement processes that they had established and publicised.”

A relevant story for those of us who want to prevent fracking in Ireland.
