A report, by Concerned Health Professionals of New York and Physicians for Social Responsibility, pulls together studies, data and news reports on the health and environmental impacts of hydraulic fracturing of natural gas and oil wells. In fracking, a slurry of water, chemicals and sand is injected deep underground at drilling sites. The chemicals and chemical-laced wastewater can contaminate drinking water and send hazardous emissions into the air, endangering people who live nearby, as well as workers at drilling sites.
Bolsover Against Fracking is a non-political community group concerned about the impact of fracking on the area. We are non-profit making and welcome all members of Bolsover and the surrounding area.
We, along with many other local groups, aim to protect our environment, health and livelihoods. We only support non-violent, legal and peaceful protests.
