North Texas Renewable Energy Group: Sharon Wilson on Fracking in North Texas - Irving

Feb 8 2020 - 10:00am to 12:00pm
Midway Hills Christian Church
11001 Midway Rd
Dallas , TX

Presenter is Sharon Wilson, a senior organizer at the EarthWorks Oil & Gas Accountability Project. Sharon worked for 12 years as a data manager in the oil and gas industry. But when the Halliburton-developed drilling technology of “fracking” or hydraulic fracturing unlocked a “Saudi Arabia of natural gas” just beneath North Texas, she turned her back on that industry and became Texas’ number 1 anti-fracking activist. 

Sharon has briefed NATO Parliamentary Assembly, EPA regulators and even former EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy on the impacts of oil and gas extraction. In 2014, she became a certified optical gas imaging thermographer and now travels across the U.S. making visible the invisible methane pollution from oil and gas facilities. 

Join us for a stunning look into the disastrous world of fracking and the damage it has caused to the air quality and groundwater in North Texas. Free.
