Fracking and the Un-Hoodwinking of America

VIDEO LINK BELOW. Sandra Steingraber Ph.D, sends Europe a powerful message from the USA. BIFF hopes you will watch, share and send this to MPs, MEPs, Councillors and all your representatives.

Ecologist, author, and cancer survivor, Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D. is an internationally recognized authority on the environment links to cancer and human health.

(Excerpts) “Fracking is a capital intense industry. It requires a network of extensive infrastructure that includes not just a multitude of wells spread across the landscape but also roads, condensers, flare stacks, pipelines, compressor stations and waste pits. Fracking brings with it mass industrialization of the rural landscape.

Once these investments are made and infrastructure laid down, fracking is very difficult to dislodge.

Rules are so complex their enforcement is not possible in a budget constrained world.

[We] point to damning science, now finally trickling in, which shows that fracking is inherently dangerous to human health and to that part of the environment namely water, air and climate on which long term economic vitality depends.

Fracking needs to be banned rather than regulated.”
