This report describes a previously uncharacterized occupational health hazard: work crew exposures to respirable crystalline silica during hydraulic fracturing.

The American National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) identified exposure to airborne silica as a health hazard to workers conducting some hydraulic fracturing operations during recent field studies.

December 2015 - American firm Schuepbach lost its legal action against the French state to be allowed to frack for shale in Southern France.

On the 8th of December, as negotiators from around the world were working around the clock to reach agreement on a climate deal in Le Bourget, just 20 miles west from there, the administrative court of Cergy-Pontoise was hearing the arguments of Schuepbach over the abrogation of two permits in the wake of the anti-fracking law passed in 2011.

The terms used in oil and gas well exploration can be confusing to anyone not involved in the business. At worst, these terms can be used to mislead nonspecialists who are trying to learn about the potential consequences of the industry.

Homeowners, be aware! That fine print in your homeowner’s insurance policy could really matter if hydraulic fracturing damages your home sweet home. Fracking-related damage, insurance industry insiders say, is not covered under a standard homeowner’s insurance policy. Neither is damage caused by floods, earthquakes or earth movement, which insurers call exclusions.
