Gas Production Pollution Small Unless You Are Downwind Of A Facility

Emissions from Marcellus Shale Account for Small Portion of Health/Pollution Problems in PA

In 2011, air pollutants from natural gas extraction and transportation in Pennsylvania cost the state between $7 million and $32 million in healthcare, agriculture, and infrastructure costs. That’s according to a recent study from the RAND Corporation. For comparison, the state’s largest coal-fired power plant alone cost $75 million in damages.
“The total emissions are actually pretty small,” said RAND Scientist Aimee Curtright, “and the total damages are pretty small, but the emissions are not evenly distributed over the entire state, it’s not just an average level of emissions over the whole state, it actually is concentrated in the couple of counties where activity is the highest.”
That means health and other effects are higher in areas near non-conventional development sites.

If you’re in a county where there’s not any activity going on, this is not affecting your health, but if you’re in the vicinity of one of these things it is going to have an impact on your health,” said Curtright.  Read more...
