Fracking fluid contaminates our water, fracked gas escapes into the atmosphere, and the breakneck pace of drilling for these low-quality wells wreak havoc on wildlife habitat and human communities alike.Please don’t let anyone tell you that it’s SAFE, because it is not.
Major concerns regarding Fracking are:
- Toxic drilling fluids and fracturing fluids, injected deep underground and then withdrawn, may contaminate underground aquifers and surface waters.
- Air emissions including volatile organic compounds (VOCs)threaten human health, especially of workers and residents of the immediate vicinity.
- Diesel pollution and noise pollution can be constant, as truck traffic is intensive and fracking continues 24-7.
- Stress factors affect the quality of life in communities where drilling occurs.
- Methane leaks accelerate climate change. Methane is 72 times more potent at capturing heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide over the first 20 years after release.

Guests: Mark Eddy, Doug Shields, Robin Mahonen & Erin Bowers
Topic : FRACKING Date of aired show: August 16, 2013
First of all we wish to let our listeners and readers know that both of the Greenhunter Water Solutions representatives backed out out of this interview a few hours before the live broadcast. Mr. Jack confirmed this interview 3 weeks ago, then backed out via an email to Mark Eddy politely declining. Note: Thanks to Doug Shields, we have sent word to Tom Linzy who is the executive director of the Community Environmental Defense to interview him on another date.
UPDATE 9-16-14 : To this day, those who have backed out of the interview have never contacted TTD again.

THE SKY IS PINK : Watch the full documentary here:
An emergency short film from Josh Fox, the Oscar-nominated director of Gasland addressing the urgent crisis of drilling and fracking in New York state.Induced hydraulic fracturing or hydrofracking, commonly known as fracking, is a technique used to release petroleum, natural gas (including shale gas, tight gas and coal seam gas), or other substances for extraction.
