The Trans-Atlantic Plastics Pipeline: How Pennsylvania’s Fracking Boom Crosses the Atlantic

Published on May 08, 2017 - Reports: America’s oil and gas rush is now coming to Europe, polluting both sides of the pond, contributing to climate change and threatening coastal wildlife.

European countries must protect the environment and public health and reject America’s headlong rush to fracking and cracking pollution and environmental damage.
