The Risk of Unintended Consequences

A recent published study has been able to connect increased morbidity to people 65 and older living near natural gas “fracking”wells   This correlational research compared health outcomes between causes of death and illness for older people living near these wells   Unfortunately, there are no air quality monitors currently in place near these wells to help identify causal agents 

While this is a separate issue for the planned carbon sequestration pilot near Terre Haute, there are little safety inputs to protect residents who might be adversely affected in the future.
