Dr. Tom Williams will discuss “Frack or not frack? Got water?” at the next meeting of Active Claremont on Thursday, January 16 at 7 p.m. in the Santa Fe Room of the Hughes Center, 1700 Danbury Rd.

Dr. Williams received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Kansas and his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley. He has worked for URS and Parsons Corporations in San Mateo and Pasadena over a 30 year period, and has extensive overseas experience in China, Japan, Mongolia, Southeast Asia, Marshall Islands, Russia, Peru, India, Kenya, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt, UAE/Oman and Iran working for corporations and for Asian Development Bank, World Health and USAID.

Now retired, Dr. Williams is active in the LA32 Neighborhood Council and the Sierra Club, where he serves on the Fracking, Oil and Gas (FOG), Transportation and Water Committees. Currently, he is focused on California issues for climate changes, water resources and supply, and oil and gas exploration, production and transport.
