Chesapeake PSR

Support Our No Secrets Fracking Report

Climate Change and EnergyTimothy WhitehouseComment

Chesapeake Physicians for Social Responsibility (Chesapeake PSR), along with PSR Philadelphia and PSR New York, has launched a campaign to support the development of a report, written and reviewed by accomplished health experts and/or journalists, that examines the ways the fracking industry hinders scientific inquiry into and actively distributes misinformation about the health impacts of fracking. An organizing committee will select the authors and reviewers and work with the authors and reviewers on a proposed outline and work plan.

The findings in this fracking report will be important because a new state law requires the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) to write Maryland fracking regulations by October, 2016. Unless the state General Assembly institutes another fracking ban or moratorium, this means Maryland intends to allow fracking to begin soon. 

It will cost money to produce this report, and to get it into the hands of every Maryland policymaker. Please make your gift to Chesapeake PSR.
