This surprising-but-welcome invitation came a couple of days after a bit of Twitter back and forth between Alec and Phelim McAleer over the weekend. That correspondence was spirited at times, but Heartland jumped in to make peace: Let’s have a debate! When it comes to the environment, Heartland is always game, and we have the science and experts to back it up.
This is the rest of Heartland’s and Alec’s correspondence:
So the debate is set, pending a response to our tweet from the Hamptons International Film Festival. No response so far, but it’s early yet and the festival is If the Hampton film folks would like to get a hold of Heartland to make this happen, they can address the email to Jim Lakely at email@example.com. (That’s me, Director of Communications at Heartland.)
As we said, Heartland will provide one of the most knowledgable persons on the planet on this subject — a man who earned the first-ever Ph.D in groundwater hydrology. That man, Jay Lehr, frequently mentions in our weekly conference call with Heartland Seinor Fellows that he’s willing to drink fracking water — and do it on stage for all to see. That’s high drama worthy of a film festival!
Heartland awaits confirmation of our booking to the event, and will keep readers of Somewhat Reasonable informed.
