Health and High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing

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.
