Reports on Fracking

We think it is important to take decisions about fracking based on facts of what has actually happened in the past, rather than speculation on what “might” or “may” or “could” or “should” happen in the future.

This recent report says that “There are now over 450 peer-reviewed publications in this field, consisting of studies, reviews and commentaries.”

Here is a list of some of them, made by reputable agencies including the New York State Department of Health, and the Chartered Institute for Environmental Health.

Also included are a couple of good articles, a Professor of Engineering (Dr Anthony Ingraffea, see ‘Myths and Facts’ link) and links to videos with people talking about their own direct experience of fracking. There is also a google earth exploration of what one fracking field in the USA looks like.
