Most of us will never visit the Bakken. We read the news stories, hear the reports of spills and train explosions and lives changed forever, and scratch our heads as oil executives tell us that fracking is essential to a thriving national economy.
On Thursday, July 23 from 10-11 am Mountain, Earthworks will help you understand firsthand what life in the Bakken is like. They’ll be hosting a one-hour webinar on the challenges of living in the Bakken, the national implications of the North Dakota oil boom, and what you can do to help, featuring people who have experienced the boom and bust, with all its attendant issues. Registration required; click on the register button to sign up.
