I am participating in a briefing re: new scientific findings on fracking, including cancer risk, for PA legislators, et al
I’ll be bringing both my identities with me: public health biologist + young adult cancer survivor overly familiar with bone scans pathology reports
Why I’m headed to Harrisburg tomorrow: 67 cases of childhood and young adult cancers in SW PA, the center of the Marcellus fracking boom.
Great reporting by @donhopey and @TEMPLETOONS

@justdanfornow When I worked in the impact assessment branch of QLD’s EPA, the dept had a ‘policy’ of not commenting on greenhouse gasses. Despite state legislation (based on ESD) and Australia’s obligations under Kyoto at the time. This is where the illegality began. #ClimateTrials #qldpol
The legacy that gas industry will leave the present generation: unremediated infrastructure, spill sites, throughout extensive networks of gas pipelines as experienced in USA. @ssteingraber1 #pipelines #remediation #CSG #shale
$220,870 is the cost for just 21.3km of colocated gas & water gathering lines. Please note that the pipes WILL NOT be removed from the ground, they are to be abandoned in situ

@drvox Methane holds heat 30-80 times more efficiently than CO2.
Natural gas is making the climate crisis worse.
