Quotes

...But DiGiulio did conclude the activity of the hydraulic fracturing industry is "poorly documented, hindering assessments of potential resource damage and human exposure,” In plain speak, their study confirms fracking is taking place at much shallower depths than previously thought and there is little in the way of data to accurately predict the potential human, let alone environmental, costs for such dangerous practices. For now, legislators do not plan on increasing federal oversight on the more than 1 million hydraulic fracturing operations currently taking place in the United States."
...said Scott Braun, HS3 Principal Investigator from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, working at Wallops during the mission. "We evaluate the targets in terms of our science objectives and determine which one best addresses those objectives. We factor in stage of the life cycle of the storm, likelihood of formation or intensification, interaction with the Saharan Air Layer, among other things."
"Current conventions for reporting data and presenting scenarios for future action need to give greater prominence to these investments. Such a rebalancing of attention will reveal the relentlessness of coal-based industrialisation, long underway and showing no sign of abating."
