And writer Tom Wilber will be here. He’s author of Under the Surface, Fracking, Fortunes and the Fate of the Marcellus Shale Cornell University Press (May 2012). Wilber spent 17 years with the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin, covering business, health, and environment beats. He has reported on shale gas development in New York and Pennsylvania since 2008; and he was among the first reporters to provide daily coverage of events in Dimock Pennsylvania, which have since become iconic of the national controversy over fracking. For his coverage, he won top honors in Best of Gannett beat reporting in 2010.
