Fracking Report

Originally posted in the IEEE Spectrum

POSTED BY: Bill Sweet  /  Tue, March 01, 2011
A major investigative report published by The New York Times this last Sunday, February 27, identified important environmental hazards in natural gas fracking that previously have received little or no attention. Easily the most eye-catching is the disclosure that waste water from natural gas drilling wells sometimes contains levels of radioactivity that far exceed Federal drinking water standards. But that is not the only significant concern to be aired.
