notonewell

@ninaberman of @noorimages for @icphotog | It takes around 4 million gallons of water to frack one well. There are 7500 shale gas wells in Pennsylvania with 100,000 planned. Do the math and the question is where do you get all that water from? In this picture trucks are lined up with their diesel engines running at a water intake spot along the Susquehanna River in Wyalusing, Pa. Fracking is taking place all over the country even in areas with limited water resources. Water or gas? This is the choice. All week I’ll be posting images on fracking as part of the ICP climate series.

@ninaberman for @icphotog | Citing health risks, New York governor Andrew Cuomo announced today that he will not allow fracking for shale gas in NY State. This is a huge victory for environmentalists and those who want to protect our climate. Fracking and gas drilling has made many people and animals sick in Pennsylvania where fracking continues at full speed. After their water was contaminated and her child and animals became sick, Jodie Simons and Jason Lamphere gave their horses bottled water. Eventually the gas industry settled and bought the family’s land for $300,000.

@ninaberman of @noorimages for @icphotog | A cat sits on a porch rail with a shale gas drilling rig in the background. Drilling and fracking are 24 hour 7 day operations that have turned once quiet and rural areas into industrial zones. Photograph in Rome, PA. This is day 3 of my ICP Instagram posting. Stay tuned for more pictures on fracking the Marcellus Shale.
