Complete broadcast: http://www.kontext-tv.de/node/237
With Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director of Food and Water Watch, Washington DC
“Fracking” (hydraulic fracturing) is a technology used in the US as well as in Europe to press large amounts of natural gas out of hard rock slate. Studies have shown that ground water thus becomes contaminated with various chemicals. Fracking is also suspected of being able to trigger earthquakes. The non-governmental organisation Food and Water Watch has just published a comprehensive study with the title: ” Fracking. The New Global Water Crisis”. Kontext TV asked the Executive Director of Food and Water Watch, Wenonah Hauter, which effects Fracking has on the water supply.
