MarcellusGasInfo Impact of drilling on agriculture

Recent Gas Drilling News - March 10, 2013 - 3:20pm

What happens when gas drilling and organic agriculture collide? I’m posting some blogs that ponder those concerns. Posts are drawn from a 3-part series originally published in New York Organic News (NOFA-NY) in 2012. Research was supported with a grant from SEJ’s Fund for Environmental Journalism.

MarcellusGasInfo NSF-funded frack survey – very open ended… anyone can respond

Recent Gas Drilling News - March 7, 2013 - 4:31pm

The National Research Council of The National Academies (National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and Institute of Medicine) is conducting a project to look into the risks associated with extracting natural gas from shale deposits using technologies of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (commonly called fracking). The project is supported by the National Science Foundation.

Scientists involved in the project will summarize available knowledge about risks of fracking and about ways such risks might be effectively and consistently managed. Our hope is to advance understanding and help to better inform national discussions about the future use of fracking technologies.

The first step in this project is to identify the range of issues about fracking that concern Americans. To do this, we have examined research and news reports, and through this message, we are canvassing a wide-range of potentially concerned individuals and groups across the nation that may have concerns about issues related to fracking. We want to learn about public concerns because we believe that science should address those concerns. We also want to identify fracking-related issues or concerns about which people would like to learn more. The National Research Council will use this input to help choose the issues its project will address.

To find out more about the project, and submit your input, go to their survey at http://fluidsurveys.com/s/nrc/
