No to shale gas development

Any suggestion to now begin a shale gas industry (designed to last for decades) directly contradicts the data, and constitutes an intellectual, not to mention moral, failure. Read the latest editorial by Jim Emberger from CRED-NB core member the New Brunswick Anti-Shale Gas Alliance (NBASGA). Jim writes: “Fracking pollutes both ground and drinking water. It produces copious air pollution. Ever-longer wells use huge and growing amounts of freshwater, and produce correspondingly more toxic wastewater, for which no safe, affordable method of disposal exists. It causes earthquakes.” Read the editorial HERE.
