Put the data on health and fracking in the hands of decisionmakers
Counter industry denial:
send your representatives Gas Patch Roulette
Earthworks released a new report last week, Gas Patch Roulette: How Shale Gas Development Risks Public Health.
The largest health investigation of its kind, Gas Patch Roulette couples pollution testing with reports from more than 100 people living in the shadow of Pennsylvania's gas development. It concretely reveals the pattern of gas development's impacts on health and communities.
But decision makers continue to turn a blind eye to growing evidence. Tens of thousands of new gas wells are permitted each year while industry and officials ignore public health risks.
What are the health impacts of having the oil and gas industry in your backyard?
