Shane Davis, research biologist and chairman of the Poudre Canyon Group of Sierra Club, shares highlights from the 4,000 hours he spent researching the safety record of the oil and gas industry in Colorado. His research documents cases of groundwater contamination associated with drilling and hydraulic fracturing, setback loopholes that endanger our health, incriminating photographs of illegal wastewater dumping, and spills which occur with alarming frequency.
Davis found an astonishing abundance of uncivil, unethical and immoral operating exemptions, failures, ground and surface water contaminations, equipment failures, suppression of data, lack of accountability, loopholes, and willful neglect to prevent and mitigate adverse environmental & human health impacts.
Shane has delivered over 150 presentations in 30 Colorado counties on the hidden impacts of hydraulic fracturing using Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission documents that clearly expose the State and oil and gas industry's failures and impunity surrounding the practice.
