Guest speaker Calvine Tillman, former mayor of DISH. 

Mansfield Gas Well Awareness, a new group of Mansfield residents, is sponsoring what’s believed to be the first DFW presentation by a medical doctor on the health effects of fracking as part of a campaign to re-write the city’s six-year old drilling ordinance they say no longer reflects the best science, or provides enough public protection.

Dr. Anne Epstein, M.D. is an internal medicine specialist who graduated from Baylor Medical School and sits on the Lubbock County Board of Health. She’s a member of the Board’s Oil and Gas Advisory Committee that recently voted to recommend setbacks of 1,500 feet separating homes, workplaces, and schools from wells. Mansfield currently allows wells as close as 600 feet to residences, with post drilling development up to 100 feet.

Are humans causing global climate change?  What is the evidence?  What will happen to the planet?  Why do people disagree about it?  And what can be done about it?  

A lot of people either (1) deny that the planet is warming , often claiming that it is cooling, or (2) accept that the planet is warming but deny that humans are causing it. 

The Humanists of Fort Worth are hosting guest speaker Dr. Michael Slattery, who will explain the evidence for anthropogenic climate change. He has spoken on this topic to a wide range of audiences, including coal and chemical industry groups. He enjoys speaking to audiences who are skeptical, and he will entertain questions anyone has during his presentation.

Professor Slattery is the Chair of the Dept. of Environmental Science and Director of the Institute for Environmental Studies at TCU. He obtained his Ph.D. from Oxford in 1994. Among numerous other publications, he is the author of Contemporary Environmental Issues, which is now in its third edition.
