If you are—and  you should be—you should join PSR for a webinar:

“Too Dirty, Too Dangerous:
Why Health Professionals Reject Natural Gas”

Wednesday, March 22, 2:00 – 3:00 pm EST

Natural gas is worse for health than many people realize. More and more gas is extracted using fracking, and scientific studies now associate fracking with hospital admissions, low-birth-weight babies, and other grave health effects. You’ll learn about these studies in our webinar.

That’s not all. Methane, natural gas’s primary component, has a disproportionate impact on climate change. And it leaks into the atmosphere from fracking wells, compressor stations, even the distribution pipes that carry it to our homes.

This leakage makes natural gas at least as bad for the climate as coal, if not worse, over a 20-year timeframe—which is about how long we have to avoid climate catastrophe.

This webinar will deepen your understanding of the dangers associated with natural gas. With that understanding, you can help us reject its use and promote the transition to clean renewable energy sources.
