Cornell University engineer on Fracking

i Aug 14th No Comments by

In this short talk, Dr Anthony Ingraffea of the Civil and Environmental Engineering department of Cornell University talks about:

  • why fracking is not a “60 year old tried and tested” technology
  • how pretty much all wells leak within a few years, and why this is
  • how fracked gas is not a ‘clean’ fossil fuel: in fact it is dirtier than coal

In his talks he also recommends the following two sites as sources of reliable, fact-led information about fracking:
