Title

Gas fracking: can we safely squeeze the rocks?

Authors
Published in Environmental Development. 2013, vol. 6, p. 86-99
Abstract Hydrological fracturing techniques have made accessible vast unconventional gas reserves. However, observed impacts on the environment and human health raise legitimate public concerns. The potential climate benefits of coal-to-gas substitution are both less clear and more limited than initially claimed. The question of whether to allow or ban gas fracking needs to be carefully assessed by relevant authorities. A review of current related policies and regulations is critically needed.
