Toward an understanding of the environmental and public health impacts of shale gas development: an analysis of the peer-reviewed scientific literature, 2009-2014

There has been an explosion in the number of peer-reviewed publications on environmental and health impacts of unconventional oil and gas operations recently, with approximately 73% of all available peer-reviewed papers published in the past 24 months and a current average of one paper published each day. 96% of all papers on health indicate risks/adverse …

A Public Health Review of High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing for Shale Gas Development

This comprehensive review of the existing literature by the highest health authority of the state of New York subsequently led to a ban of high volume hydraulic fracturing (HVHF) by Governor Cuomo. In conclusion the report says: “The current scientific information is insufficient. Furthermore, it is clear from the existing literature and experience that HVHF …

Fracking Frenzy – How the fracking industry is threatening the planet

The global development of ‘unconventional’ fossil fuels (UFF) such as shale gas has provoked much debate involving scientists, industry, political decision-makers, environmental groups and civil society. More than a decade of large-scale development in North America has left a legacy of environmental damage, primarily resulting from the use of high-volume horizontal hydraulic-fracturing (also known as …

World Energy Outlook 2014

“Demand for natural gas grows by more than half, the fastest rate among the fossil fuels, and increasingly flexible global trade in liquefied natural gas (LNG) offers some protection against the risk of supply disruptions. The main regions that push global gas demand higher are China and the Middle East, but gas also becomes the …
