New York Senate forum to address the likely economic impacts of fracking in New York. The DEC has based its economic impact analysis on reserve estimates that were a bit overstated. They took those reserve estimates and used them to project what that would mean in terms of jobs and taxes in New York. And those projections became part of the dSGEIS and the fracking folklore about what fracking would do for Upstate. New York became the World Capital of Shale Hype. No one in the industry actually … [Read more...] about State Senate Forum on Fracking Economics Feb 4th
Commentary: Impact of fracking eludes us While the gas industry continues to mislead the public about the harmful health and environmental impacts of unconventional natural gas development (also called hydraulic fracturing or fracking), evidence of its dangers is mounting. The latest revelation comes with the publication last week of a report on the impact on air quality from gas and oil extraction, processing and distribution in six states, including our own. The report, … [Read more...] about The Daily Frack – Nov. 10
Fracking: Landowner sues New York, seeks compensation for ban Jon Campbell, @JonCampbellGAN Published 4:13 p.m. ET Dec. 21, 2017 | Updated 5:45 p.m. ET Dec. 21, 2017 Fracking has been the subject of much debate. But before your form an opinion on the subject, first consider the process. USA TODAY, 2012 ALBANY - An East Rochester lawyer waging a years-long battle over New York's hydraulic fracturing ban is taking a new approach, filing a lawsuit last week attempting to force … [Read more...] about Fracker Sues DEC Over Non Existence Gas Reserves

New study published in the journal Science has something for everybody as to how shale gas industrialization impacts water quality. The report summarizes findings of some previous work and offers a fair explanation of the various ways that shale gas wells can contaminate groundwater. In basically confirms what we (Ingraffea, Allstadt, Bishop, Myers, Rubin, et al) have been saying for years - albeit in guarded, industry-laced jargon. They also cite industry studies in the same context as peer … [Read more...] about Impacts of Shale Gas on Water
January 10th NY Assembly committee hearing on fracking. Conspicuously absent was the DEC. Which now becomes Exhibit A. Remarkably fine testimony came from The Sandra, James Bacon on compulsory integration, Paul Gallay on what a hash the DEC has made of the regs., Dr. Ron Bishop, Jannette Barth on the economic impacts, Kelly Branigan, Dr. Larysa Dyrszka, Dominic Frongillo explained how the DEC has ignored local government, Nadia Steinzor, Katherine Nadeau, etc. Roger Downs had a good idea - … [Read more...] about Assembly Testimony Online

No matter how hard they don't try . . . Have skimmed the progress report of the EPA's study of the impact of fracking on water resources, copy here : http://www.epa.gov/hfstudy/pdfs/hf-report20121214.pdf And I noticed a few curious things, like the fact that the EPA apparently do not know much about gas wells, which is not too surprising, considering they were fracked out of regulatory oversight over oil and gas wells back in 2005 by the Halliburton Loophole. Take for instance this chart … [Read more...] about EPA Won’t Find What They’re Not Looking For
Lou put me onto a new study by a team of researchers seeks to assess the risks to groundwater from fracking the Marcellus shale. Published in the scholarly journal Risk Analysis, the study concluded that shale gas industrialization will pose a substantial risk to water in the region, with the greatest risks from the disposal of toxic, radioactive fracking flowback, and contamination from individual wells via casing failure. The study did not address methane migration into groundwater from the … [Read more...] about Fracking Risk Assessment
