Over the past decade, the oil and gas industry has fused two technologies—hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling—to unlock new supplies of fossil fuels in underground rock formations across the United States. “Fracking” has spread rapidly, leaving a trail of contaminated water, polluted air, and marred landscapes in its wake. In fact, a growing body of data indicates that fracking is an environmental and public health disaster in the making.
Trenton – Firing a new salvo in the ongoing debate over the gas drilling practice known as fracking, Environment New Jersey Research & Policy Center today released a report documenting a wide range of dollars and cents costs imposed by dirty drilling. As documented in "The Cost of Fracking," fracking creates millions of dollars of health costs related to everything from air pollution to ruined roads to contaminated property.
