What's the talk about?

I'm going to give a talk about what people think about fracking, from three perspectives - the scientist, the activist and the local person with fracking happening on their back door. I'll be looking at what fracking is- as a method for extracting gas from shale, why some people don't like fracking and what the people who live where fracking is happening are actually worried about. 

I'm a PhD student at Plymouth, studying what people know about geology. I have previously worked at the Natural History Museum in London as the Identification Officer for Earth Sciences and as a Science Educator. I have worked as an actual geologist too; as an Engineering Geologist in Australia. I currently tweet, blog and generally harangue passers-by about how awesome geology is. Can occasionally be seen making dinosaur footprints....
