Nancy Reid & Lisa Smith welcome Jim Nations, the National Parks Conservation Association's VP for the Center for Park Research, on Big Blend Radio's NATURE CONNECTION show to discuss the new report 'National Parks and Hydraulic Fracturing: Balancing Energy Needs, Nature, and America’s National Heritage' that was just released by the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA).
This new report examines the impact of existing, proposed, and potential oil and gas development on America’s national parks and offers recommendations to ensure future drilling safeguards public health and the environment. The report’s five case studies analyze national parks that are already in the path of the fracking boom, including: (1) Theodore Roosevelt National Park, (2) Glacier National Park, (3) Grand Teton National Park, (4) Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River and Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, and (5) Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area and Obed Wild and Scenic River.
