Add comment on:New Report First to Quantify Damage Done by Fracking
Washington, D.C. — As federal policy makers decide on rules for fracking on public lands, a new report (see PDF) calculates the toll of this dirty drilling on our environment, including 280 billion gallons of toxic wastewater generated by fracking in 2012 -- enough to flood all of Washington, D.C., in a 22-foot deep toxic lagoon. The Environment America Research & Policy Center report, "Fracking by the Numbers," is the first to measure the damaging footprint of fracking to date.
