Science and Medical Experts Urge White House Not to Rush More Shale Gas Fracking

December 14, 2012
By Glynn Wilson –

A group of scientists, doctors and engineers is urging the White House to slow down on plans for rapid expansion of natural gas development in the United States so that more studies of the negative health and environmental effects can be conducted.

Moving ahead rapidly with plans to approve several new liquefied natural gas terminals would require “a rapid increase in fracking in the United States without credible science” and “could potentially cause undue harm to many Americans,” according to 107 experts who signed on to a petition sent to the White House Thursday.
