fracking & your air
Oil and gas operations in the U.S. produce significant air pollution – everything from drilling to the production and processing of natural gas affects our air. In fact, the oil and gas industry releases millions of pounds of pollutants like methane, benzene, and sulfur dioxide into our air each year.
Water defines our life in the summer in Maryland. We visit and vacation on the water. Sadly, this summer, many of us avoided spending time on Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. Throughout the summer we saw reports of people and pets contracting serious infections from swimming in those waters that flow into the Chesapeake Bay.
