The Center of the American West, Boulder County, and AirWaterGas started the FrackingSENSE lecture series on February 26th, 2013 featuring speakers with expertise on natural gas development to provide a measured, honest exploration of the controversial topic. Throughout the series, CU historian Patty Limerick acts as moderator. In fall of 2013, the same group re-launched the series, but this time called it FrackingSENSE 2.0 and encouraged speakers to offer evidence-based findings that might lead to recommendations and prescriptions for the future. Below you will find the links to all of these talks, including podcasts, and videos.
