Presentations: "The Realities of Hydraulic Fracturing" and "Fracking Inhumanity"

"The Realities of Hydraulic Fracturing"
"The Realities of Hydraulic Fracturing" - Dr. John O'Connor
Both speakers will reveal their first-hand experiences of hydraulic fracking in Canada, and will outline their concerns regarding the processes involved, as the debate continues here over the granting of licenses.
Ms. Ernst is a biologist and environmental consultant to the oil and gas industry, and long time critic of the method of Fracking in use in Alberta, Canada.
Dr. O'Connor is a Irish born physician who came to prominence for highlighting the increased cancer rates downstream from Canada's largest Tar Sands operations. The Alberta Cancer Board confirmed the higher incidences, after Health Canada and the Alberta College of Physicians spent time, and resources, denying the facts, and attempting to discredit Dr. O'Connor's observations. Dr. O'Connor was vindicated completely by the Alberta College of Physicians, but no study to date, has yet been implemented, despite the Cancer Board's recommendations. With first-hand experiences of living in rural communities where Fracking, and heavy drilling takes place, their insight into industry practices promises to be both informative and timely.
Sligo County Council recently joined their colleagues in counties Clare and Roscommon in banning Fracking, (Leitrim put in place a 5 year moratorium), fearing that the processes involved may damage the region. But it is acknowledged that this ban can be overturned by Government at a future stage.
Members of the public are, therefore, encouraged to attend these presentations to inform themselves of the facts and to have any of their concerns addressed.
The presentation schedule is as follows:
