Earthworks released a new report last week, Gas Patch Roulette: How Shale Gas Development Risks Public Health.

 The largest health investigation of its kind, Gas Patch Roulette couples pollution testing with reports from more than 100 people living in the shadow of Pennsylvania’s gas development. It concretely reveals the pattern of gas development’s impacts on health and communities.
