This briefing provides an in-depth view of the emissions to the outdoor atmosphere associated with high volume hydraulic fracturing (HVHF). The briefing was organized and produced by Great Lakes United.

Dr. Theo Colborn draws upon her vast experience in the field of environmental health to focus public attention on air contamination resultant from shale gas exploitation. Shale gas drilling and production pollutes the air with many dangerous chemicals, including: benzene, formaldehyde, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and radon.

Kim Cornelissen describes the work of Quebec activists seeking to protect that province from shale gas exploitation. Canada is developing a shale gas industry to fuel tar sands exploitation. Much of Canada's natural gas has been consumed in the upgrading of tar sands crude.

John Jackson provides a big picture view of shale gas exploitation in the Great Lakes region. Clearly shale gas exploitation constitutes a major threat to Great Lakes air quality. Air pollutants, including benzene and formaldehyde already pose a threat to public health in the Great Lakes basin. Adding shale gas contaminants to Great Lakes air is unacceptable.
