Wolf quoted on anti-fracking demonstration in Sacramento
Shaye Wolf, climate science director at the Center for Biological Diversity, confirmed the dangers that fracking poses to air quality, water quality and human health.
“Governor Brown says science must guide decisions on fracking, and scientists tell us that fracking pollution threatens the water we drink and the air we breathe,” Wolf said in a press release from Californians Against Fracking. “Extreme oil extraction in California uses incredibly hazardous chemicals near our precious water supplies. Air pollution from fracking and drilling endangers the health of millions of Californians living near oil and gas wells. It’s time for the governor to protect our state by stopping the oil industry from using fracking and other toxic techniques.”
