Now On Demand: Webinar- Radioactivity In Fracking - Too Hot To Handle With Scientist/Author Justin Nobel

Delaware RiverKeeper Network webinar Radioactivity In Fracking - Too Hot To Handle with scientist and author Justin Nobel is now available for on demand viewing.

In 2020, Justin Nobel wrote an expose of fracking’s radioactivity, in particular in the wastewater and other wastes produced by conventional and unconventional natural gas drilling.  [Read more here]

“There is little public awareness of this enormous waste stream, the disposal of which could present dangers at every step — from being transported along America’s highways in unmarked trucks; handled by workers who are often misinformed and under protected; leaked into waterways; and stored in dumps that are not equipped to contain the toxicity. Brine has even been used in commercial products sold at hardware stores and is spread on local roads as a de-icer.”

These other resource links are available from the webinar--
