About Graham's Support for:
To understand what hydraulic fracturing options exist for Michigan decision-makers today and how to minimize any negative future impacts, U-M researchers undertook a comprehensive examination of hydraulic fracturing options in the State of Michigan and identified policy approaches for decision-makers to consider.
Using the IA process of facilitating a structured dialog among scientists and decision-makers, project teams established the guiding question: “What are the best environmental, economic, social, and technological approaches for managing hydraulic fracturing in the State of Michigan?” Based on this idea, researchers from diverse disciplines gathered and assessed information to help inform decision-makers.
The project was a partnership convened by Graham and included the U-M Energy Institute, the Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise, and the U-M Risk Science Center. Graham spearheaded the project, convening a multisector advisory group to scope the project, facilitating an interdisciplinary team of students and faculty, running extensive public engagement and peer review processes, and leading outreach and communications.
