Make a difference in the challenge to confront global warming and prevent nuclear war and the development and use of nuclear weapons.
Tell Congress you won’t support phony chemicals policy reform -- only real, health-protective reform.
Maryland’s Department of the Environment (MDE) has closed public comments a draft report, Marcellus Shale Safe Drilling Initiative Study Part II Best Practices. Chesapeake PSR submitted comments expressing concerned that the proposed best practices are not based on a scientific assessment of likely impacts in Maryland and would allow polluters to hide behind complicated trade secret rules and non-disclosure agreements. We are working with our partners and legislators to fix key problems in the report.
In addition, PSR , the Maryland Environmental Health Network, and the Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments are preparing comments on a study being commissioned by the Maryland’s Department of Health & Mental Hygiene on the proposed health effects of hydraulic fracturing. The draft scope of the study is found at www.marcellushealth.org. Chesapeake PSR has been a key player in Maryland in pushing for increased attention to the health concerns associated with hydraulic fracturing.
