Bethany McLean, Author, Saudi America: The Truth About Fracking and How It's Changing the WorldGreg Dalton, Founder and Host, Climate OneAdditional Speakers TBA In Bethany McLean's latest book, Saudi America: The Truth About Fracking and How It's Changing the World, she explores the past, present and future of fracking in America. She tells the stories of many who have had stakes in the industry, including Aubrey McClendon, pioneer in fracking and founder of Chesapeake Energy, whose accidental death in 2016 brought up questions about a string of faulty economics and debt that began to catch up with him.  McLean finds that as stakes get higher and the fossil fuel industry becomes more attractive to some, its promised returns have yet to come through, leading us all to ask: What's next for fossil fuels? Is this the end of the shale revolution, or is the money just beginning to come in? Join us for a conversation about the economics and geopolitics of one of the wealthiest and most detrimental industries in our world.  Location: 110 The Embarcadero, Taube Family Auditorium, San FranciscoTime: 6 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m. program, 7:30 p.m. networking receptionNotes: Thanks to the generous support of Ken and Jackie Broad Family Fund, all tickets include a copy of McLean's book, Saudi America: The Truth About Fracking and How It's Changing the World All ticket sales are final and nonrefundable.
