From The Greeley Tribune:

The Sierra Club will present “What the Frack?,” a program about hydraulic fracturing used in the oil and gas industry, from 7-9 p.m. Saturday in Fort Collins.

The event will be at the Fort Collins Brewery, 1020 E. Lincoln Ave. The program will address how hydraulic fracturing, known as “fracking,” affects Larimer and Weld counties. The method of resource extraction uses high-pressure water and chemicals to release oil and gas from shale deposits deep underground.

The free event will include free beer and food. The guest speaker will be Wes Wilson, an official retired from the Environmental Protection Agency. Wilson is featured in the documentary, “Gasland,” which explores the subject of fracking.
