The facts and fiction about fracking will be considered at a community forum hosted by Lifetree Café.

The program, titled "To Frack or Not to Frack? An Informative Hour of Respectful Conversation," features filmed interviews with both supporters and detractors of fracking.

"The U.S. is on its way to energy independence, thanks to hydraulic fracturing," says Tisha Schuller, President of the Colorado Oil and Gas Association.

"I consider fracking one of the single greatest threats to our health and that of our environment," says fracking activist Shane Davis. "I studied 1,000 spill reports, and 43 percent of them resulted in groundwater contamination."

Community members will also have the opportunity to weigh in with their opinions.
