Over 250 communities in the United States have passed resolutions to stop
hydraulic fracturing or “fracking,” a process used to extract natural
gas by water-intensive drilling technology. Hydraulic fracturing
introduces industrial activity into communities without critical
information about environmental public health impacts. In this webinar, Dr. Richard Jackson discusses what he calls a
“perfect storm” of environment, health, energy, economic, and political
forces and will suggest approaches to better protect human health.
