Noise pollution from fracking may harm human health
Fracking creates noise at levels high enough to harm the health of people living nearby, according to the first peer-reviewed study to analyze the potential public health impacts of ambient noise related to fracking.
Thousands of oil and gas industry wastewater spills in North Dakota have caused “widespread” contamination from radioactive materials, heavy metals and corrosive salts, putting the health of people and wildlife at risk, researchers from Duke University concluded in a newly released peer-reviewed study.
We all take transportation for granted whether it’s driving our car to work; flying to a favourite holiday destination; or waiting for that new television to be delivered from the other side of the world by cargo ship.
While transportation offers us many benefits, these come at a price. Truck Locator has compiled just a few of the statistics which show the substantial impact transportation has on a global scale.

Peer-reviewed analysis released day after HB40 forces Denton City Council to yield fracking oversight to state
Washington, DC & Denton, TX — A peer-reviewed study today reveals widespread groundwater pollution in the Barnett shale from fracking chemicals. Directly countering the EPA study released earlier this month, the University of Texas at Arlington study is accepted for publication in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.
“This study suggests the Environmental Protection Agency is taking a “see no evil” approach to fracking water pollution,” said Earthworks Policy Director Lauren Pagel.
