Fact Sheets: Science Overwhelmingly Confirms the Safety of Fracking

For years, activists opposed to hydraulic fracturing (fracking) have tried to deceive the public about this well-understood and extensively studied process which has been used to stimulate oil and gas wells since the 1940s. However, study after study has proven their claims to be severely misleading at best and completely false at worst.

Energy In Depth has developed a series of Fact Sheets that focus on four areas frequently singled out by activists, showing that despite their claims, the science overwhelmingly concludes that fracking is safe and the risks are manageable.
