Fracking poses ‘significant’ risk to humans.

A major new scientific study – by MICHAEL WARHURST on JUNE 23, 2015 of CHEM Trust –  has concluded that the controversial gas extraction technique known as fracking poses a “significant” risk to human health and British wildlife, and that an EU-wide moratorium should be implemented until widespread regulatory reform is undertaken.

A response to the claims made by the UK fracking industry by MICHAEL WARHURST on JUNE 23, 2015 CHEM Trust yesterday launched a new report “Chemical Pollution from Fracking”:

and briefing “Fracking pollution – How toxic chemicals from fracking could affect wildlife and people in the UK and EU“:

The report was the result of months of research and was written by a very experienced technical journalist. It’s worth noting that CHEM Trust’s view that the current regulatory system is not adequate is supported by a detailed analysis undertaken by the European Commission, which concluded that a new comprehensive regulatory approach to fracking was the most beneficial option.
