    New report: California fracking operations use 197 unique chemicals

    by Dan Bacher

    For the past several years, Catherine Reheis-Boyd, the President of the Western States Petroleum Association (WSPA), and other oil industry representatives have claimed that fracking is "safe" and causes no environmental harm.

    "WSPA's position on hydraulic fracturing is well known and well documented: in the 60 years that the practice has been in use in California, there has been no evidence that it has caused harm to public health or to the environment," said Reheis-Boyd, the former Chair of the Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) Initiative to create "marine protected areas" in Southern California, in her blog on the WSPA website. (http://www.wspa.org/blog/post/other-side-hydraulic-fracturing-debate)

    However, a report released by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) on August 12 helps to counter oil industry claims that fracking is “safe” and doesn't cause harm to the environment, since it documents the use of 197 unique chemicals used in fracking operations in the state. An EWG analysis of state data reveals that the fluids used in hydraulic fracturing of oil wells in California contain dozens of chemicals that "are hazardous to human health, including substances linked to cancer, reproductive harm and hormone disruption."
