Chelsea Retirement Community will host a free program titled “Fracking and Water Protection,” on Thursday, Jan. 31 at 3 p.m. at 805 W. Middle St.
James Clift, policy director for the Michigan Environmental Council, will speak at CRC about fracking, which is the controversial process of extracting natural gas from shale rock layers deep within the earth.
Clift is a graduate of Central Michigan University and Wayne State University Law School. He has taught or lectured at schools across the state including the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Oakland University, Wayne State University and Central Michigan University, according to a press release.
“Before coming to the council, James worked at the Michigan Senate and served as a policy director, where he supervised a 12-member policy staff and was primarily responsible for environmental protection issues,” the information states.
