On July 21, 2022, the Environmental Health Project and HealthFirstPA hosted a webinar summarizing the findings of EHP's latest white paper, Pennsylvania's Shale Gas Boom: How Policy Decisions Failed to Protect Public Health and What We Can Do to Correct It. A recording of the webinar is available below.
This one-hour webinar focuses on policy decisions made by the Pennsylvania state government that failed to protect public health from the harmful effects of shale gas development (also called “fracking” or “unconventional gas development”). The webinar also examines the resulting health impacts of these decisions. Finally, it explores what state government can do moving forward to better protect residents from the health impacts of this pollution.
The webinar content relies largely on the findings of the Environmental Health Project’s white paper, “Pennsylvania's Shale Gas Boom: How Policy Decisions Failed to Protect Public Health and What We Can Do to Correct It.” The webinar is geared toward anyone with an interest in learning about how government repeatedly failed to protect public health and what steps can now be taken to remedy the situation.
