Compendium of Scientific, Medical, and Media Findings Demonstrating Risks and Harms of Fracking
PSR co-writes, co-releases new fracking report
PSR has co-released a report that summarizes recent research showing harms to health from fracking, aka hydraulic fracturing for natural gas and oil. The report highlights health risks ranging from air and water pollution to a newly emerging problem: leakage of methane and toxic gases from natural gas compressors, pipelines and other infrastructure. PSR members wrote and edited the report with our colleagues at Concerned Health Professionals of New York. Read the report here.
PSR and Concerned Health Professionals of New York have written President Obama and Surgeon General Murthy requesting a meeting to discuss the report's findings and how to protect human health. Read the letter here.
In addition, PSR chapters in three states have requested similar meetings with their governors. See their letters: Maryland, Pennsylvania and New York.
