Webinar: Too Dirty, Too Dangerous: Why Health Professionals Reject Natural Gas

March 22, 2017

Time: 2:00 - 3:00 pm

Are you concerned about fracking? Natural gas pipelines and compressor stations? The push to replace coal-fired power plants with gas-burning ones?

You're right to be concerned! For more information on just how bad natural gas is for health and for the climate, join PSR for a webinar.

We'll present recent scientific and medical studies that document harms to health from fracking, such as associations between proximity to fracking sites and premature births; studies that indicate much greater amounts of methane leakage from gas extraction and transport than previously imagined; and why it is so urgent that methane's climate impacts be viewed over the gas's first 20 years in the atmosphere.

The studies we highlight will be an important part of the case you make against natural gas.
