Physicians ask Gov. Wolf for Moratorium on Fracking
Following a panel discussion on June 19th, members of Better Path Coalition, the Philadelphia Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility and other health professionals provided Governor Wolf with a copy of the new "Fracking Compendium." (Link: www.psr.org/blog/resource/compendium-of-scientific-medical-and-media-findings-demonstrating-risks-and-harms-of-fracking/)
They also presented a letter requesting a pause in authorizing unconventional well permits and an investigation to determine whether or not fracking in areas of southwestern Pennsylvania is the cause of a cluster of rare childhood cancers and fatalities.
Later, the Unitarian Church of Harrisburg hosted the same presentation, which was open to the public. UUPLAN's Environmental Justice Team Co-Chair Rachel Mark created a PHOTO DIARY (Link: www.uuplan.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/BPC-Panel-6-19-2019.pdf) containing her own pictures and tweets from the events. Thank you, Rachel!
