“Shale Sustainability” is one of the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation’s sustainability grantmaking programs—focusing on improving the governance of shale development in addition to supporting efforts to reduce the negative environmental and community impacts of shale gas development.
The foundation is funding the University of Texas at Arlington’s inaugural “Responsible Shale Energy Extraction” conference on April 21-22 in Dallas as part of Earth Day Texas 2017 (www.EarthDayTX.org).
The event, chaired by UTA’s Collaborative Laboratories for Environmental Analysis and Remediation (CLEAR lab), will bring together concerned citizens, scientists, oil and gas operators, regulators, and technology developers for a series of straightforward discussions about environmental stewardship within the shale energy sector.
Featured keynote speakers, including:
-Scott Anderson, Environmental Defense Fund
-Katharine Hayhoe, Texas Tech University’s Climate Science Center
-Kevin Schug, UTA’s CLEAR lab
-Scott Tinker, University of Texas at Austin, Bureau of Economic Geology
