IUP Marcellus Shale Week Symposium

Posted on 10/4/2010 2:19:09 PM

A community and university symposium about Marcellus Shale will take place November 2, 3, 4, 5, 2010, on the IUP campus and in downtown Indiana.

The gains from natural gas from Marcellus Shale are well known—jobs, energy, and economic gains for secondary business and industry. A four-day symposium, “Marcellus Shale and a Sustainable Future: Balancing Energy, the Economy, and the Environment,” explores the lesser-known aspects, such as the historical, social-environmental, legal, political, and health issues related to gas extraction.

The conference includes a balanced series of topics, with speakers and panelists from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Duquesne University, and SUNY–Oneonta, plus University of Pittsburgh faculty, other regional scholars, state-elected and agency officials, corporate executives, and representatives from statewide environmental groups, as well as community members and students.
