Join the producers of a yearlong Climate Desk investigation documenting China’s quest to break free of coal, which outlines the societal, environmental, and human impacts of China’s nascent fracking boom. Asia Society Northern California and Mother Jones present a multimedia presentation and expert panel discussion on how the controversial fossil fuel extraction method is impacting the country’s environment and population, a deep dive into the project’s findings, and a discussion on what’s next for China—and the world.
