Justin Nobel and Jess Irish: Pipeline Impacts and "America's Radioactive Secret"

Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Room UL104, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003

Oil-and-gas wells produce nearly a trillion gallons of toxic waste a year. A recent investigation by Rolling Stone reporter Justin Nobel shows how this waste could be making workers sick and contaminating communities across America.

In an evening co-presented by the MFA Design and Technology program and Sane Energy Project, Nobel will speak about his investigation. Assistant Professor of Design and Technology Jess Irish will debut her new short film, 21 Reasons Why "Natural Gas" Stinks, part of the ongoing Visualizing Pipeline Impacts research project.

A discussion following the presentations will offer direct ways to fight radioactive fracked gas and fracked gas waste here in New York. 

Sponsored by the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons School of Design. Co-sponsored with Sane Energy Project, Food & Water Watch and United for Action.
