Speakers corner. To frack or not to frack?

To frack or not to frack? Why is that not a global public health question and how should public health practitioners address it?
There is a powerful and pressing argument now for public health practitioners to follow Virchow and to start to move beyond repeatedly pointing out the many problems of fracking. Their next prudent steps should address ‘theoretical’ and indeed practical energy solutions without adding to global climate change while being attorneys protecting the mental and physical health and well-being of vulnerable communities threatened by fracking”, says Professor Watterson of University of Stirling in this commentary.
