Frack Off!

There are 500,000 active gas wells in the U.S. Each well can be fracked 18 times. Approximately 40,000 gallons of chemicals are used per fracturing, chemicals that include toxins and carcinogens like lead, mercury, hydrochloric acid, and formaldehyde.

In sum: 72 trillion gallons of water and 360 billion gallons of chemicals are needed to run our current gas wells.

Panelists discuss the environmental impacts of fracking and efforts to resist the industry at local and national levels.
