DENR Report: No Evidence that “fracking can be done safely”

On Tuesday March 20th, over 500 folks turned out to the shale gas hearing in Sanford. We heard many concerns about the findings of the draft report (draft executive summary) and the possibility of “fracking” for natural gas here in North Carolina.

The next hearing will be held on Tuesday, March 27th in Chapel Hill. We encourage all who plan to speak to arrive by 5:15PM in order to sign up. 

6:30-9:30 PM for the hearing
East Chapel Hill High School Auditorium

Both Sides in Fracking Debate Say More Data Needed

“Both sides of the fracking debate agree on at least one point — there is not enough information in the draft report issued by state environmental officials to determine whether the controversial form of drilling for natural gas can be done safely.” March 22, The Pilot (Southern Pines, NC)

In state’s fracking report, politics threatens to trump science 

“If you read the first nine pages of the state’s draft report on fracking, you will be unprepared for the punch line at the end.  Written by the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the 444-page report was released March 16. It clearly lays out the many potential perils associated with the controversial drilling method.” March 21, The INDY Weekly
