This program explores “What We Know, What We Don’t Know, and What We Hope to Learn about Oil & Gas Development.” FrackingSENSE events are public forums that aim to increase the productivity and elevate the character of public dialog about unconventional oil and gas development in Colorado and the American West at large. At FrackingSENSE events, the emphasis is on increasing the signal and decreasing the noise in a public discourse through listening, evidence-based discussion, thoughtful questioning, respectful disagreement, and an atmosphere of civility.
