Cumulative Impacts Working Group call: New Energy Developments: Social and Environmental Impacts

Mar 28, 2012

Dr. Simona Perry is an applied social and environmental scientist whose current research focuses on emerging social and environmental conflicts around new energy development projects in North America. For the past three years, Simona has been documenting the quality of life and environmental changes being experienced by local farmers and forest landowners in Bradford County, Pennsylvania. As of March 22, 2012, 1,073 Marcellus shale gas wells have been drilled in the county , miles of pipeline and acres of new compressor stations have been installed across the landscape, and water withdrawal sites continue to be developed along the Susquehanna River and its tributaries.  All of the developments associated with the Marcellus shale gas industry amount to a rapid industrialization of the landscape in which farmers, forest landowners, families, and neighbors increasingly feel confusion, frustration, anger, depression, and high levels of stress over the future of their land, water, soil, and lives.  

Simona's broad theoretical and practical focus is on understanding the everyday lives of individuals and communities in a rapidly changing world, sense of place phenomena in the face of globalized markets and identities, and creating locally-informed and culturally relevant policy dialogues that empower local citizens to engage in regional, national, and global deliberations. She received her Doctorate of Philosophy from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in human dimensions, holds a Master’s degree in marine and environmental policy from the University of Washington, and a Bachelor of Science in wildlife biology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. 

The call was moderated by Carolyn Raffensperger, SEHN.
