Note to Viewers: The Ingraffea-Engelder Debate was sponsored by the Board of the Village of Starkey as a public service. No money was requested or collected at the event; no profit was made.
This video is a saved copy of what was broadcast live during the event. The "webcast" reached several hundred viewers through the Ustream service, which was free to us, the debate presenters, and free to the viewers. The commercial advertisements inserted by Ustream are unfortunate and annoying, but they enable the service to remain free. Ustream alone places the ads and derives any revenue from those ads. We, the presenters, have nothing to do with the ads. Managing and distributing live video to potentially thousands of viewers requires significant resources and infrastructure and Ustream funds its operation (free to us, free to viewers, free to anyone) by placement of advertising. We used several hundred viewer-hours of live distribution, for which we paid nothing. All of the camera equipment and its operation were provided by local volunteers. An "official" video of the event was recorded and produced independently from the webcast and is currently being edited. It will be of high quality, shot by experienced videographers on multiple professional cameras, and should be available on ShaleShockMedia.org in a few days. At that time, this webcast archive will be removed.
