We are being inundated with advertising from various corporate interests about the benefits of fracking. America will become energy independent, the ads promise. We will become an oil exporter and heat our homes with inexpensive natural gas. Fracking is a controversial process of injecting toxic chemicals deep under ground. We never hear from fracking's critics. Now there is a chance to hear from the other side.

A panel discussion on fracking is scheduled for Thursday, November 29, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. The event takes place at the Daley Library, Circle Campus, University of Illinois, 801 South Morgan, Daley Room – # 1-470 (1st floor).
