Webinar: Too Dirty, Too Dangerous: Why Health Professionals Reject Natural Gas
September 13, 2017
Time: Noon - 1:00 pm EDT
Are you concerned about fracking? Natural gas pipelines and compressor stations? Have you tried to make the argument that fracking is unsafe, yet haven't yet found a way to do so with research?
Join PSR and Halt the Harm Network for a webinar to learn about a new Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) report on recent scientific findings that document methane’s implications on our health.
Tune in to hear from speakers Barbara Gottlieb, Director of Environment and Health at PSR, and Chad Oba, grassroots anti-pipeline activist from Buckingham County, VA to learn more about fracking's impacts on our health, communities and climate. Make sure to stay after the presentations to engage in a Q&A and discussion about the report and how you can use this resource in your work.
