Citing Human Health Risks, Report Calls for EU Moratorium on Fracking

Deirdre Fulton, staff writer

A major study (pdf) released Sunday finds that chemicals from fracking sites have the potential to cause significant pollution while posing risks to human health and wildlife.

In turn, the CHEM Trust—a British charity that investigates the harm chemicals cause ecosystems—is calling for a moratorium on fracking across Europe until key recommendations are put in place.
