Fracking explained: opportunity or danger
Fracking explained in five minutes. Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side the gas drilling companies, on the other citizen opposed to this drilling method. Politicians are also divided on the matter. We try to take a neutral look on fracking. It is relevant for all of us, because of high prices for energy and the danger for our drinking water. This video focuses mostly on the debate currently ongoing in europe. In a lot of european countries there is a public outcry against fracking, espacially in germany. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us. Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science. We would love to interact more with you, our viewers to figure out what topics you want to see.

An Overview of the North American Natural Gas Industry
Black & Veatch's Strategic Directions in the North American Natural Gas Industry report identifies key challenges and opportunities within each segment of the value chain. Learn more at http://bit.ly/1cpX6xq TRANSCRIPT Announcer: Optimism for sustained growth continues across all segments of the natural gas value chain according to Black & Veatch's 2013 Strategic Directions in the North American Natural Gas Industry report. However, realizing the full potential of North America's vast natural gas resources will require the industry to overcome challenges that affect each component of the value chain. Beginning with the Upstream segment, an uncertain regulatory environment has slowed the development of new pipeline capacity to support emerging shale gas plays. With few options to move shale gas to market, producers are increasingly looking to implement commodity enhancement programs, such as liquefied natural gas or compressed natural gas production. The discovery and production of vast natural gas reserves across North America has had a profound impact on the pipeline industry. While new capacity is a critical need for high-demand centers and developing shale plays, the costs associated with maintaining now underutilized capacity are straining finances and making it difficult for pipelines to attract capital. At the same time, the increasing reliance on and forecasted demand for gas in the electric generation industry have created new challenges associated with gas reliability and capacity and with determining who should pay for new infrastructure to support power generation. Increasing demand for natural gas from power generators, the need for new pipeline capacity, and system wide investments to ensure the safety and integrity of physical and information assets, all add to the cost of natural gas services for consumers. Low U.S. prices and strong global demand create tremendous incentives to invest in LNG export capacity. Asia is the most likely market for U.S. LNG. Recently prices in Asia have been above $15 per million British thermal units, while European prices have been closer to $10. This year's report shows that growth and optimism for sustained growth continue. Improving technologies, from drilling applications to monitoring and data acquisition, are enabling the industry to better manage assets, reduce costs and be better positioned to meet evolving regulations.

Environmental impact assessment of extracting, processing and transporting oil and gas
The law of Ukraine “On environmental impact assessment’ (https://www.mcl.kiev.ua) defines the following types of activity that negatively affect on environment and are the subject of EIA (https://www.mcl.kiev.ua ): – oil refinery and gas-processing plants (except enterprises that produce only lubricants from raw oil), gasification units or liquefaction of coal or bituminous shale; – oil and gas extraction on the continental shelf; – pipes for transport oil, gas, chemical substances diameter more than 800 millimeters and length of more than 40 kilometers; – facilities for storing of oil, petrochemicals and chemicals with a capacity of 200 thousand tons or more. These types of activity refer to the first category, and it means, that documents in the process EIA (https://www.mcl.kiev.ua) should be submitted to the Ministry of ecology and natural resources of Ukraine. How do activities of mentioned below objects impact on environment and human health? Oil refineries are the main pollutants of atmospheric air. The pollutant substances that emitted into the atmosphere by the oil refineries are plum bum, nitrogen oxide, sulfur oxide, carbon monoxide, benzene, dioxins and chlorine. Emissions with plum bum lead and accumulate in soil. Moreover, the emissions of pollutants of oil refineries cause greenhouse effect that destroys ozone layer of planet. There is a threat of soil pollution by oil and petrochemicals during well drilling and pipeline transport. Spilled oil is absorbed by interstices of soil, and its physical and chemical composition changes. It reduces the drainage capacity of the soil and disrupts the feeding of root systems of plants and trees. The process of environmental impact assessment (https://www.mcl.kiev.ua) of extraction and transportation of oil and gas, and also, oil refineries should includes the researches of impact on atmospheric air, soils and water bodies (if available). The report of environmental impact assessment (https://www.mcl.kiev.ua) must consist of the results of these researches, prognosis of possible impact in future times and measures of its reducing on environment and human health.

Fracking Hell: The Untold Story
Find more Earth Focus content at https://www.linktv.org/earthfocus An original investigative report by Earth Focus and UK's Ecologist Film Unit looks at the risks of natural gas development in the Marcellus Shale. From toxic chemicals in drinking water to unregulated interstate dumping of potentially radioactive waste that experts fear can contaminate water supplies in major population centers including New York City, are the health consequences worth the economic gains? Marcellus Shale contains enough natural gas to supply all US gas needs for 14 years. But as gas drilling takes place, using a process called hydraulic fracturing or "fracking," toxic chemicals and methane gas seep into drinking water. Now experts fear that unacceptable levels of radioactive Radium 226 in gas development waste. Fracking chemicals are linked to bone, liver and breast cancers, gastrointestinal, circulatory, respiratory, developmental as well as brain and nervous system disorders. Such chemicals are present in frack waste and may find their way into drinking water and air. Waste from Pennsylvania gas wells -- waste that may also contain unacceptable levels of radium -- is routinely dumped across state lines into landfills in New York, Ohio and West Virginia. New York does not require testing waste for radioactivity prior to dumping or treatment. So drill cuttings from Pennsylvania have been dumped in New York's Chemung and other counties and liquid waste is shipped to treatment plants in Auburn and Watertown New York. How radioactive is this waste? Experts are calling are for testing to find out. New York State may have been the first state in the nation to put a temporary hold on fracking pending a safety review, but it allows other states to dump toxic frack waste within its boundaries. With a gas production boom underway in the Marcellus Shale and plans for some 400,000 wells in the coming decades, the cumulative impact of dumping potential lethal waste without adequate oversight is a catastrophe waiting to happen. And now U.S. companies are exporting fracking to Europe.

Computer Simulation for Solving Environmental Problems in the Oil and Gas Industry
Transportation, processing and production of hydrocarbons and natural gas is associated with the risks of pollution by oil products and chemicals. In order to assess these risks, as well as monitoring and control of factors affecting them, computer simulation methods are more widely starting to get occurrence in oil and gas industry, which also can play an important role in increasing the extraction of oil and gas and efficiency of their processing. However, when solving most of practical problems (objectives) only the concentration of petrochemicals on the surface is known. It should be noted that when using commercial software occurs a situation when the applicable software does not take into account all relevant factors and requires the specification of parameters that the user doesn’t possess. Therefore, in most cases it is necessary to complete existing or develop new mathematical models and user interface directly according to the user’s tasks and available source data.

Are Electric Cars Really Green?
Are electric cars greener than conventional gasoline cars? If so, how much greener? What about the CO2 emissions produced during electric cars' production? And where does the electricity that powers electric cars come from? Environmental economist Bjorn Lomborg, director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, examines how environmentally friendly electric cars really are.

So does Leonardo DiCaprio. And many others. The argument goes like this: Regular cars run on gasoline, a fossil fuel that pumps CO2 straight out of the tailpipe and into the atmosphere. Electric cars run on electricity. They don’t burn any gasoline at all. No gas; no CO2. In fact, electric cars are often advertised as creating “zero emissions.” But do they really? Let’s take a closer look. First, there’s the energy needed to produce the car. More than a third of the lifetime carbon-dioxide emissions from an electric car comes from the energy used make the car itself, especially the battery. The mining of lithium, for instance, is not a green activity. When an electric car rolls off the production line, it’s already been responsible for more than 25,000 pounds of carbon-dioxide emission. The amount for making a conventional car: just 16,000 pounds. But that’s not the end of the CO2 emissions. Because while it’s true that electric cars don’t run on gasoline, they do run on electricity, which, in the U.S. is often produced by another fossil fuel -- coal. As green venture capitalist Vinod Khosla likes to point out, "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." The most popular electric car, the Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime will emit 31 metric tons of CO2, based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption at average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit just 3 tons more across its production, diesel consumption and ultimate scrapping. The results are similar for a top-line Tesla, the king of electric cars. It emits about 44 tons, which is only 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro. So throughout the full life of an electric car, it will emit just three to five tons less CO2. In Europe, on its European Trading System, it currently costs $7 to cut one ton of CO2. So the entire climate benefit of an electric car is about $35. Yet the U.S. federal government essentially provides electric car buyers with a subsidy of up to $7,500. Paying $7,500 for something you could get for $35 is a very poor deal. And that doesn’t include the billions more in federal and state grants, loans and tax write-offs that go directly to battery and electric-car makers The other main benefit from electric cars is supposed to be lower pollution. But remember Vinod Khosla’s observation "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." Yes, it might be powered by coal, proponents will say, but unlike the regular car, coal plant emissions are far away from the city centers where most people live and where damage from air pollution is greatest. However, new research in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that while gasoline cars pollute closer to home, coal-fired power actually pollutes more -- a lot more.

What Is Fracking?
You’ve heard of fracking, and you’re pretty sure lots of people don’t like it, but do you know how it actually works? Learn more at HowStuffWorks.com: http://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/energy/hydraulic-fracking.htm Share on Facebook: http://goo.gl/M5kx1i Share on Twitter: http://goo.gl/FbuzEW Subscribe: http://goo.gl/ZYI7Gt Visit our site: http://www.brainstuffshow.com Fracking. You’ve heard of it. You know it’s controversial. But you might not know what it actually involves. Never fear: We’re here to put some fracking knowledge in your brain. Fracking is the delightfully cheeky-sounding nickname for Hydraulic Fracturing... which sounds a little bit less delightful and more like something you do to your enemies in Starcraft. But no! It is something we do to rocks. In the simplest terms, hydraulic fracturing is a way of getting more of the valuable fluids, like oil and natural gas, out of geologic formations under the ground. Deep under earth’s surface, there are deposits of rock that have huge reserves of oil and natural gas within them. But these fossil fuels aren’t like big lakes where you can just stick a straw in and suck. No, these reserves of oil and natural gas are found locked up in pores distributed throughout vast layers of rock, like shale. So how do you get them out at a reasonable pace? Let’s look at a typical fracking setup for something like shale gas: You start with a deep, vertical well, drilling a hole down to the level of the shale you want to mine. The depth will vary, but just for example, one company claims its average fracking well depth is 7,700 feet. That’s deep: almost one and a half miles, or about 2.3 kilometers. When you’re at the right depth, you take a 90-degree turn and continue to drill horizontally, parallel to the target rock layer. This horizontal section of the well can also travel thousands of feet. Now here’s where the “fracturing” comes in. First, you open up holes in the horizontal section of the pipe. Then, you vigorously push a liquid cocktail known as fracking fluid down into the borehole under high pressure. This fracking fluid is usually a mixture of water, some chemical additives -- like acids to help dissolve the rock, and gels to thicken the fluid -- and finally, solid particles called proppants – we’ll get to those in a second. When the mixture reaches the horizontal section of the pipe, it bleeds out through the holes into the surrounding rock, and the extremely high pressure causes the rock to form tons of little fractures, or cracks. Through these cracks, the reserves of fossil fuels contained in the rock can escape into the well to be pumped back up to the surface. What once was entombed in ancient rock is now on the way to powering your car or heating the water for your next shower. And those proppants I mentioned, which are often just grains of sand, help “prop” the cracks in the rock open, so the Earth’s precious bodily fluids continue to escape into the well without the miners applying continuous pressure. So that’s how it works, but then there’s the entirely separate question of whether fracking is a good idea. It’s controversial in many parts of the world. Some people claim it consumes too much fresh water, and worry about what will be done with the fracking fluid after it’s been used. And some opponents wonder if it will create earthquakes, or cause chemical contaminants to leak into our groundwater.

Crown Eco Management Why is natural gas better than coal boilers
The economic development of one country is dependent upon the ability of the authorities to set up a highly suitable, competitive and reliable electricity sector. Why is natural gas better than coal boilers? Only when there is extreme environmental pressure or substantial reduction in loads that conversion from coal to 100% natural gas is possible. Not until the 20th century until natural gas was used for production of energy, it was dismissed as a useless byproduct of crude oil production until then. But now natural gas accounts for 23 percent of the world's energy consumption and still growing. The International Energy Agency predicts that the demand for natural gas will grow by approximately 44 percent through 2035. Natural gas is the cleanest-burning conventional fuel not to mention it has been one of the most economical energy sources. It is an environmentally friendly and efficient source of energy. It produces lower levels of greenhouse gas emissions than heavier hydrocarbon fuels such as coal and oil. Natural gas fuels electric power generators, heats buildings and is used as a raw material in many consumer products, such as those made of traditional plastics. However, natural gas has never been a cheaper fuel than coal. Coal is one of the longest-used and is considered as the most abundant fossil fuels on Earth. Coal mining has been going on since then 17th century. Coal burning boilers have also been around for a long time, and while they may not always be popular, these machines have some definite advantages in terms of costs and simplicity. Because it is the most abundant it is the cheapest form of fossil fuel to burn. But coal boilers on the other hand have harmful effects on the environment and human health. Its emissions contain sulfur combines with air to create the poison gas sulfur oxide. When this gas releases into the atmosphere, it causes polluting rain. Extracting coal from mines further damages soil and water resources, adding to the disadvantages of using coal burning boilers. While coal prices are expected to remain stable natural gas prices are expected to increase as higher cost natural gas reserves need to be developed to meet growing demand and offset losses from depleting gas wells. On the other hand, natural gas based technologies have a capital cost advantage. Whatever the costs may be, don't you think it is better to use natural gas rather than the coal boilers? Even though natural gas is more costly than coal boilers it is less harmful to the environment and to human health. It is always better to take into considerations the things that are more important than money. It is not wise to be thrifty over something that in a long run would back fire on you and worst your kids. Long term effects of coal boilers are scarier than the costs in terms of money that it will bring us today. Environmental effects and health issues will sure be more costly in the future.

Sandra Steingraber on the Health Crisis Surrounding Natural Gas Extraction
DemocracyNow.org - About 30 states allow hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," the natural gas drilling process that injects millions of gallons of water, sand and chemicals deep into the earth in order to break up shale rock and release natural gas. New York has imposed a partial moratorium on the drilling process pending the outcome of an environmental impact study this July. Yesterday, New York state lawmakers held a hearing on the health impacts of fracking, an issue that until now has received little media attention. Democracy Now! interviews Sandra Steingraber, a biologist who testified at the hearing. She is author of "Raising Elijah: Protecting Children in an Age of Environmental Crisis."

Light Your Water On Fire from Gas Drilling, Fracking
A video by Scott Cannon DEP consent order proving methane migration: http://imgur.com/OWUXAYN http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL062539BFB8A2B2D4&feature=view_all Please read this before saying methane migration doesn't exist. It's a proven fact: http://thetimes-tribune.com/news/sunday-times-review-of-dep-drilling-records-reveals-water-damage-murky-testing-methods-1.1491547 The Promised Land in real life. Matt Damon John Krasinski People can light their taps on fire because of gas drilling. This is one of those cases. In fact, one of the companies that produced Truthland, Chesapeake Energy, was responsible for this mess. A snippet from the Marcellus Shale Reality Tour video Sherry Vargson gave the group a tour of her farm in Granville Township, where Chesapeake Energy has drilled one well and installed compressor and metering stations and a gathering pipeline. She said her water became contaminated with methane after maintenance activities at the site in June 2010, and lit water from her tap alight for a trip attendees and the media. The little bus wound its way over green mountains, alongside undeveloped stretches of the meandering Susquehanna River and through some of Pennsylvania's most pristine wilderness. The man inside with the microphone, the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition's Scott Cannon, said there's trouble in paradise as he pointed out the changes Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling has brought to Pennsylvania's Northern Tier. Here was a drilling rig, there a water withdrawal site and every so often yet another pipeline was laid out in preparation for burial. The sights were part of the coalition's "Marcellus Shale Reality Tour," held Sunday for area legislators, municipal representatives and candidates for political office. "We still have to deal with pipelines, compressor stations; they wanted to put a frack water treatment facility in Hanover Township -- that was an hour away from the nearest drill site," Cannon said. About 15 people attended the tour, including candidate for U.S. representative Bill Vinsko, Wilkes-Barre Administrative Coordinator Drew McLaughlin and Luzerne County Council candidates Kathleen Dobash, Salvatore Licata, Eileen Sorokas and Michelle Bednar. "It's all about information," Sorokas said. "You can't beat going firsthand and seeing it. I've heard so many things about it; I want to clarify it in my mind." "It's important to learn about all sides of this important issue," said Vinsko, a Democrat who plans to a 2012 challenge to Republican Lou Barletta in Pennsylvania's 11th Congressional District. "In order to make informed decisions, I wanted to hear from the landowners on both sides of the issue. I also plan to meet with the gas companies to get all sides of the story, but this is an important first step." At least one trip participant had already made up his mind about the issue. Throop Borough Council President Tommy Lukasewicz said he has been fighting against the efforts of Keystone Sanitary Landfill to increase its daily intake by 2,500 tons, which would allow it to accept more solid waste from the gas drilling industry. "I agree more than anyone here probably that this is the worst thing that could happen to Northeastern Pennsylvania," he said, adding that he believes gas drilling could reverse the progress the area has made in erasing the scars left 50 years ago by coal mining. Lukasewicz, who attended Mansfield University and often drove through Bradford County to get there, said he "wanted to see firsthand what an area (he) had known about looks like now."

Environmental Protection vs. Energy Supply Security - The Shale Gas Case
This panel discussion considers the benefits and risks of shale gas extraction and hydraulic fracking in the United States and the European Union. The complexity, interrelation and competition between environmental protection and energy supply security is an emerging problem. Often, State environmental protection concerns and standards are outweighed by a competing interest, such as ensuring energy supply security. The shale gas example demonstrates that even in advanced jurisdictions with high standards of environmental protection, ecosystem services are compromised for energy generation purposes. Referring to case studies from the European Union the panelists explain the impacts of shale gas extraction on the individual elements of the environment and establishes how these result in the degradation of ecosystems and its services. Further, the panelists discuss if an ecosystem services approach can ease the competition between energy security and environmental protection can establish economic and environmental equity. This event was part of the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law's 2012 Colloquium which was hosted at the University of Maryland's Carey School of Law. https://www.law.umaryland.edu

Sussex Prepares for Natural Gas Boom
People living in rural communities east of Sussex, N.B., are coming to terms with the economic and environmental possibilities of being the centre of an energy boom. Apache Corp., a Texas company, will begin drilling for natural gas next month near Elgin and it's a ratcheting up of exploration following some promising finds last fall. Corridor Resources announced this week that a formerly abandoned well could have more natural gas than is available in all of western Canada's proven reserves. If sufficient gas is found Apache Corp. and Corridor Resources could team up on drilling as many as 480 new wells. Work is scarce in Elgin and local Fire Chief Gary Steeves said he wants that natural gas to be there. "And I really think that this thing is going to take off and start booming. And I'm hoping with my fingers crossed," Steeves said. The economic opportunity comes in the form of shale gas after Corridor Resources found a thick deposit of shale rock east of Sussex. Norm Miller, the president of Corridor Resources, said the quality of the shale gas is driving the interest in more wells. "It's because of the great thickness of the shale and the amount of what we call free gas contained in the shale, that makes it such a large concentration of gas in a relatively small area," Miller said. Fracking concerns The drilling to the gas involves fracking, a process that has the company fracture the rock to release the gas. David Keighley, a sedimentary rock specialist at the University of New Brunswick's geology department, said fracking involves pumping high-pressure water and drilling compounds into deep horizontal wells. "The worries are always in does the fracture fluids — the liquids, the gasses — will it get into the water supply," Keighley said. Those possible environmental concerns are leading one New Brunswick watchdog to call for tougher rules governing the industry. David Coon, the policy director of the Conservation Council of New Brunswick, said the provincial government should tighten the environmental rules that would apply to extracting the gas out of the area. 'We're very much in danger of negatively affecting our water, negatively affecting our land use unless we have the appropriate rules in place before this gets going in a big way," Coon said. "And it very well could get going in a big way when natural gas prices go back up." The province's environmental impact assessment process is not triggered until the company goes into what's considered commercial production, Coon said. That worries Coon, who said a lot of drilling and fracturing can legally take place before a well reaches commercia

"The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of "fracking" or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a "Saudia Arabia of natural gas" just beneath us. But is fracking safe? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination." Natural gas extraction is regulated but with numerous exemptions such as such as: 42 USC 300h(d)(1)(B) [underground injection - exemption for fracturing fluid]. You can check out a US Senate report (released in April 2011) on the chemical contents of these frac'ing fluids at: http://democrats.energycommerce.house.gov/sites/default/files/documents/Hydraulic%20Fracturing%20Report%204.18.11.pdf "An estimated 30% to 70% of the frac'ing fluid will resurface, bringing back with it toxic substances that are naturally present in underground oil and gas deposits, as well as the chemicals used in the frac'ing fluid."

Realities of Drilling: Extended and Recut
In 2012, we released ten films about energy to spark discussion about the challenges facing our nation and the world. Two of the films, called "Realities of Drilling" Parts 1 and 2 were about exploring and producing natural gas in shale deposits - to discuss the risks surrounding drilling in these unconventional plays. Given the political and emotional climate surrounding shale gas development and fracking, it was no surprise to us that they were our most popular films. Towards the release of the first season of films, we participated in an advisory panel moderated by the The Pembina Institute and sponsored by Shell Oil Company. The panel was made up largely of environmental professionals and advocacy group representatives who took a hard look at all of the films that were completed at the time - including Realities of Drilling. While the panel's comments were mostly positive, they definitely had suggestions that would make the episodes stronger and more complete. First, they asked for more discussion about efficiency and conservation, transportation, and renewables. These complicated and detailed subjects would get their own episodes in season 2 (online now), but they also called for some clarifications and expansions on Realities, which had already been cut and finished. The changes they suggested required new information and expansion on imagery that we weren't able to accommodate at the time of release. Since we were gearing up for filming on season two at the time we found a way to expand the piece by including more commentary through a new expert and working to expand on the existing interviews. Enter "Realities of Drilling: Extended and Recut" which will replace the two-episode original with a single, double-length episode which covers everything from land disruption to community challenges, fracking and beyond. Any time you take a completed piece back to the edit bench, it can be a difficult process. Unstitching fine-tuned work to find places for new content can be really challenging. But, in the end, it was worth the effort to make sure the most accurate and detailed version of the film become available for the energy-concerned citizen. More music had to be brought in, more coloring, finishing, the works. This isn't just a cobbled together re-edit, it's a completely re-constructed episode that draws on the strengths of the previous cut, which was originally conceived as two episodes, and makes a brand new single piece that works on its own. We hope this new episode is equally as engaging while providing more information to you who have likely realized that unbiased information about drilling is hard to find. Thanks for watching, and don't forget to join the discussion here on the Rational Middle website as well as on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus.

Obama's Energy Secretary Pick Outed For "Significant Conflicts of Interest" in MIT's Fracking Study
Watch the full interview with Kevin Connor on Democracy Now! at http://owl.li/jrpKC. President Obama's pick to become the nation's next secretary of energy is drawing criticism for his deep ties to the fossil fuel, fracking and nuclear industries. MIT nuclear physicist Ernest Moniz has served on advisory boards for oil giant BP and General Electric, and was a trustee of the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center, a Saudi Aramco-backed nonprofit organization. In 2011, Moniz was the chief author of an influential study for MIT on the future of natural gas. According to a new report by the Public Accountability Initiative, Moniz failed to disclose that he had taken a lucrative position at a pro-drilling firm called ICF International just days before a key natural gas "fracking" study was released. AMY GOODMAN: Kevin Connor, I wanted to turn to a 2011 press conference at the MIT Energy Initiative, where Ernest Moniz introduced the study now under contention, "The Future of Natural Gas." In his opening remarks, Professor Moniz emphasized the report's independent of its sponsors and advisers. ERNEST MONIZ: I do want to emphasize a disclaimer, if you like, that while their advice was absolutely critical, they are not responsible for the recommendations and the findings. We have not asked for endorsement. We asked for their advice; we received it. But the results, then, are our responsibility. AMY GOODMAN: Later in the presentation, co-chair Anthony Meggs introduces the MIT report's findings, saying environmental impacts associated with fracking are, "challenging but manageable." However, Meggs failed to disclose he had joined the gas company Talisman Energy prior to the release of the study. ANTHONY MEGGS: ... messages are very simple. First of all, there's a lot of gas in the world, at very modest cost. As you will see, gas is still, globally speaking, a very young industry with a bright future ahead of it. Secondly, and perhaps obviously at this stage, although not so obvious when we started three years ago, shale gas is transformative for the economy of the United States, North America, for the gas industry, in particular, and potentially on a global scale. Thirdly, the environmental impacts of shale development, widely discussed and hotly debated, are—and we use these words carefully—challenging but manageable. AMY GOODMAN: Kevin Connor, your response? KEVIN CONNOR: It's absolutely outrageous for the Energy Initiative, for Moniz and MIT to pretend this is independent of industry, well, first of all, given the fact that the sponsors of the report are all, you know, industry organizations and companies like Chesapeake Energy. Moniz was attempting to say that it was somehow insulated from the influence of these gas companies, when in fact authors of the study, such as Moniz and Meggs, were—had industry positions at the time. Meggs's quote there is particularly insidious, the fact that he is saying that fracking is safe for the environment, when he had actually joined Talisman Energy, a gas company, one of the most active frackers in the Marcellus Shale, a month before the study was released. So he is speaking to a roomful of journalists there, presenting a report designed to influence policy, and not disclosing that he is on the industry payroll. That is perhaps the last person in that room who should be presenting that finding or having anything to do with authoring that kind of report. And yet MIT and Moniz thought it was appropriate to put that spokesperson forward. So, it just goes to the fact that MIT was really sort of presenting an industry brochure here with a lot of pro-gas, industry advocacy talking points, and not revealing that there were significant conflicts of interest here. JUSTIN ELLIOTT: Yeah, I mean, one thing to note is, Ernest Moniz is getting a confirmation hearing next month, and as part of that, he has to release a personal financial disclosure, and also, at some point later, he'll have to—an ethics agreement will become public. So we should actually learn more about his current and recent involvement in these companies and possibly also stock holdings and that sort of thing, so it should be interesting.

Fracking Whatatutu Trailer
www.pledgeme.co.nz/fracking The controversial mining method of fracking could soon be widespread in NZ. Will this make a mockery of our clean green image or be our economic salvation? From the makers of This Way of Life - Fracking Whatatutu. With just five streets and 300 residents, Whatatutu is an East Coast town you can miss in a blink. It's a tight-knit community surrounded by forestry and traditional family farms -- and reserves so vast the area is "literally leaking oil and gas", according to Canadian mining company Tag Oil. Armed with exploration licenses issued by the NZ government, Tag Oil and its partner Apache intend to extract oil and gas from the earth around Whatatutu using hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking". Mining advocates claim the practice is safe; others insist it leaves a toxic legacy. Feature film documentary Fracking Whatatutu will cross-examine environmentalists and oil companies alike. Centering on Whatatutu, the film will delve into fracking throughout New Zealand. It will cut through the spin as it drills for the truth about land ownership and mineral rights, water use and waste disposal, economic benefits and environmental impacts.

The Red Mountain in Surigao "Mining" Stop Mining, Start Caring, Save the world
Nubenta Highway, Stop Mining, Start Caring, helpSurigao. Environmental impacts of mining can occur at local, regional, and global scales through direct and indirect mining practices. Impacts can result in erosion, sinkholes, loss of biodiversity, or the contamination of soil, groundwater, and surface water by the chemicals emitted from mining processes. These processes also have an impact on the atmosphere from the emissions of carbon which have effect on the quality of human health and biodiversity.[1] Some mining methods may have such significant environmental and public health effects that mining companies in some countries are required to follow strict environmental and rehabilitation codes to ensure that the mined area returns to its original state. mining simulator, mining simulator codes, mining simulator codes 2019, mining gold, mining simulator hack script, mining simulator roblox, mining in the philippines, mining simulator codes coins, mining a diamond, mining away meme, mining a gold, mining app, mining away song, mining activities, mining area, mining accidents, mining asteroids, a mining minecraft song, a mining dam collapse in southeastern brazil, a mining away, a mining dam collapse, a mining we will go, a mining dealer wrongly accused, a mining game, a meaning name, a mining dam, a name mining, mining bitcoin 2019, mining btc 2019, mining boom, mining blasting, mining by moonlight, mining backhoe, i b meaning, b tech mining engineering, b name mining, b im mining, b chandrakala mining, meningite b, mining company, mining crystals, mining craft, mining corporation, mining cave, mining computer, mining coal, mining cards, mining copper, mining cartoon, k y c meaning, mining area c, mining simulator c, c/o meaning, data mining c'est quoi, le mining c'est quoi, mining diamonds, mining documentary, mining diamonds minecraft, mining dump truck, mining drowning, mining diamonds minecraft song, mining disaster, mining dead, mining diamonds real life, mining dreams, double d mining, elite d mining, коды в mining simulator, mining_d, mining engineering, mining equipment, mining emeralds, mining ethereum, mining effects, mining excavator, mining explained, mining ethereum 2019, mining earrape, mining everyday, e mining club, e mining mp, usb3.0 pcie mining riser, e se mining, mining away e, e waste mining, e-dinar coin mining, cara mining e dinar coin, e par meaning, e dinar mining, mining for gold, mining for diamonds, mining for kids, mining farm, mining for diamonds minecraft song, mining for gems, mining full movie, mining factory, mining for gold song, mining food, k g f mining, f name mining, f o r mining, f naam ka meaning, mining games, mining gacha, mining gpu, mining gold bar, mining gems, mining gold documentary, mining gold in river, mining gold in africa, mining games for android, g diaries mining, g s t mining, g+ mining simulator, mining heavy equipment, mining home, mining haven, mining hole, mining hack, mining himalayan salt, mining house, mining history, mining horror movie, mining herkimer diamonds, p&h mining equipment, p&h mining, p&h mining shovels, h name mining, mining 10h, mining away 10 h, mining in minecraft, mining in real life, mining industry, mining in surigao, mining in tawi tawi, mining iron, mining in 2019, mining in africa, mining in baguio, i'm mining, i mining diamonds, i'm mining meme, im mining away, im mining parody, i'm mining minecraft, i'm mining rap, im mining roblox, i'm mining 1hr, mining jade, mining jelly, mining jewels, mining job, mining jadeite, mining jelly simulator, mining jobs in australia, mining jobs tv, mining just rolo, mining job 2019, j name mining, j farmer mining equipment, mining kraf, mining kit, mining komodo, mining kitchen, mining king, mining karaoke, mining kodak black, mining karinaomg, mining king gali janardhan reddy, mining knowledge, name k mining, naam k meaning, w k meaning, sidra k mining, data mining k means clustering, data mining k nearest neighbor, k name ka mining, k 391 silver mining, mining lyrics, mining landslide, mining legit, mining lava, mining laptop, mining life, mining lofi, mining legit no depo 2019, mining lead, mining lego, l&m mining, l&t mining, mining away l, i'm mining l, l naam ka meaning, mining minecraft, mining madness, mining machines, mining minecraft song, mining my way, mining madness codes, mining meme, mining movies, mining minerals, mining methods, m mining away, laplace m mining, sinister m mining simulator, laplace m mining spot, m name mining, m name ki meaning, i'm mining parody, mining news, mining news philippines, mining national geographic, mining nickel, meaning ng panaginip, mining noise, mining night, mining now, mining name, mining natural gas, n name mining, n scale mining layout, n name ki meaning, n se mining, mining of gold,
