1,000+ Health Professionals Call on President Obama to Act on Fracking
Environment America
Washington, D.C. – On February 20, Environment America Research & Policy Center and its state affiliates delivered letters (see PDF) from more than 1,000 doctors, nurses, and other health professionals to President Obama and state decision-makers asserting that fracking should be stopped, given the overwhelming threats to public health. The letters come as public awareness of the health and environmental impacts of fracking is on the rise. For example, in a peer-reviewed study published last month (see PDF), researchers found an increased rate of birth defects in babies born to mothers in Colorado who lived in close proximity to multiple oil and gas wells.
