Thom Hartmann: If this is what fracking is doing to animals - what is it doing to people?



Elizabeth Royte, The Nation Magazine, Author of "Garbage Land: On the Secret Trail of Trash" joins Thom Hartmann. Sticking to environmental horrors...Is fracking responsible for killing off an alarming number of livestock around the nation? Authors of a new report looked into 24 different case studies in six different states where hydraulic fracking is taking place, to find out why livestock is getting sick and dying. Their conclusion: itís the fracking chemicals! For example in Louisiana, the study found 17 cows that died after being exposed to spilled fracking chemicals for only one hour. In central Pennsylvania, after 140 cattle were exposed to fracking chemicals, half died. And in western Pennsylvania, after a nearby pond used by pregnant cows was contaminated with fracking chemicals, half the calves born were dead. And if this is what fracking is doing to animals, what might it be doing to people?

1. I find this unbelievable

 

I don't understand how this can proceed. There is enough evidence to at least force a whole re-examination of fracking maybe even stopping it completely

2. That's one sharp lady.

She has her facts down pat, right on the point.

Thanks for the interview, Thom.
