Critic Of Shale Gas Speaks At Hampton High

A vocal critic of shale gas extraction describes it as intense industrial activity on a very large scale.

Cornell University Professor Dr. Anthony Ingraffea appearing at Hampton High last night to talk about the myths and realities of shale gas exploration and development. 

He tells CHSJ News those people who are worried about their wells being contaminated should be. Dr. Ingraffea says it will happen.......the only questions are how many will be affected and who will pay. He says it would be foolhardy for anyone to believe nothing wrong will happen.
Dr. Ingraffea specialises in hydraulic fracture simulation and pipeline safety. He spent over 25 years taking part in research and development for the oil and gas industry.
