Reports on fracking for the Ontario Energy Board (OEB)

The Council of Canadians has worked with three experts to produce evidence before the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) on fracking. The reports, which expose why Marcellus shale fracked gas won’t be abundant and cheap, are full of useful information and facts and information for anti-fracking activists.

Environmental consultant Lisa Sumi highlights the serious environmental impacts of fracking and outlines regulatory measures underway in the U.S.

Geoscientist David Hughes demonstrates how supply predictions for U.S shale gas plays are overblown.

Cornell Professor of Engineering Anthony R. Ingraffea highlights his research exposing why natural gas is not the touted bridge fuel off of fossil fuel dependency; it will instead help us walk the plank into climate crisis.
