Statistical Analysis of Scientific Studies

Since the beginning of 2010, 400 peer-reviewed scientific studies on the effects of shale gas fracking operations have been conducted. A statistical analysis of this substantial body of scientific reports shows:

  • 73% of studies found serious pollution of drinking water
  • 92% of studies found dangerous levels of airborne toxins.
  • 87% of studies found damage to human health.
