"Hydraulic fracturing (also known as 'fracking') is the process of creating fractures in layers of rock within the earth to extract natural resources using pressurized fluid ... [The panel discussion focuses] primarily on the science, economic, and policy implications of hydraulic fracturing in North Carolina. Rob Jackson, Professor of Global Environmental Change and Associate Dean for Research at the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University, will present the science of fracking.
