Hazards of Hydraulic Fracturing

This week’s program focuses on the hazards of hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) and federal officials’ attempts to downplay some those hazards.

U.S. EPA officials denied last year that groundwater contamination in Dimock, Pennsylvania was due to fracking, although EPA’s own scientists knew that fracking was the culprit. And, whistleblowers say, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used a false name in internal correspondence about the Dimock situation. Steve Horn, writer for www.desmogblog.com, discusses these stories.

Then Richard Heinberg of the Post-Carbon Institute speaks about his new book “Snake Oil: How Fracking’s False Promise of Plenty Imperils Our Future.” Heinberg explains the hazards to water and air from fracking.

Speaker: Steve Horn. Hosts: Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips. Broadcast from Berkeley–Hard hitting News and Public Affairs with hosts Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips of Project Censored on KPFA’s morning show. The mission of Project Censored is to teach students and the public about the role of a free press in a free society and to tell the News That Didn’t Make the News and Why. Broadcasted Live on KPFA & No Lies Radio/Pacifica Radio on August 16, 2013.
