From Dirty Fossil Fuels to Clean Renewable Energy

Climate Change

An important impact of fracking on public health is exacerbation of climate change. Fracking produces methane, a greenhouse gas much more potent than CO2 and scientists warn that 2/3 of our fossil fuels must stay in the ground if we are going to avoid extreme climate disruption. Climate change will have enormous impacts to public health, through heat strokes, increased wildfires, flooding, and diseases.
