By Margaret Mager, President, and Irena Choi Stern, Publicity Chair, Friends of the Bronxville Public Library


Oct. 24, 2018:  Dr. Christian D. Klose’s book Frack this!: The Untold Story about Earthquakes Caused by Humans unveils the shocking facts that humans can cause earthquakes. With illustrations, charts, and tables, Dr. Klose, as a distinguished researcher, brings together leading-edge discoveries from top scientists around the world. With worrisome clarity, Dr. Klose describes in simple terms and in a nontechnical language the fundamental concept of human-caused earthquakes and their root causes. He shows how everyone can lay the groundwork to keep earthquake risks in perspective and how to stay safe.

This groundbreaking book provides numerous examples of evidence ranging from tremors induced by the new fracking technology for producing oil and natural gas to earthquakes caused by secret nuclear underground tests that were performed in the US and the former Soviet Union since 1955. Other examples include mining earthquakes causing billions of dollars in damages and devastating earthquakes caused by the filling of artificial water reservoirs, such as the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake in China that took more than 68,000 lives. Without opposing any of these technologies, Dr. Klose illuminates associated risks. Frack this! provides practical, insightful, and engaging knowledge for everyone who is affected by or wants to know more about earthquakes caused by humans. Written in everyday language, at 174 pages the book is a quick and enlightening read on a fascinating and important topic.

Dr. Klose, a Bronxville resident, is an expert on natural hazards. As a research scientist, he has worked at several renowned institutions, including Columbia University in New York, ETH in Zurich, and Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto. Many of his research papers have been featured in the popular media, such as the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Economist, and National Geographic, to name a few.

Dr. Klose will be speaking at the Bronxville Public Library on Thursday, October 25, 2018, at 7:00 pm in the Yeager Room; the talk will be followed by a reception. The event is free and open to the public. Registration is appreciated. Click here to register

Books & Culture

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
