Analysis Highlights Fracking Risks Ahead of Sacramento Hearing

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Ahead of a state legislative hearing Tuesday, Californians Against Fracking today released a new analysis of an independent scientific study on the environmental and health risks of fracking and other oil and gas well stimulation.

The analysis breaks down the 1,000-page study by the California Council on Science and Technology (CCST), which found that fracking threatens the state’s water supplies, public health and the environment, and — most notably — recommended minimum setbacks for all oil development to protect communities from air pollution.
