Wherever Fracking Goes, Death and Injuries Follow


I made a composite map showing that injuries and death have followed shale fracking wherever it has gone.

For this map, I combined two sources, the map of the List of the Harmed, by FracTracker.org, and also the list of 63,000 shale gas and oil wells, provided by Post Carbon Institute.

Thank you, Bill. It sure is telling isn't it.

No surprises. Hope the great jobs and cheap gas are worth the collateral damage.

Check the above map on fracking, vs deaths from cancer in the USA.
