A chilling investigative article in the January 21 Rolling Stone magazine has found that wastewater from many oil and gas wells is dangerously radioactive. The local environment, nearby residents, and especially the oil and gas industry’s own employees may all be exposed to toxic levels of radiation – but most people are totally unaware.
Register here for a PSR webinar with Justin Nobel, the reporter whose two-year investigation culminated in these explosive revelations.
