DISAGREEMENT IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST

Riverkeeper Paul Gallay will be among the panelists at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs next Campbell Debate, debating the proposition, “This Assembly Believes Hydrofracking Does More Harm Than Good.”

Employing a style adapted from the Oxford Union debates, each Campbell Debate at Syracuse University allows a gathered audience to consider a question of national, regional or local significance. Two panels comprised of thought leaders will argue for each side, followed by counterpoints and audience questions and comments.
