Project Censored - 08/20/13

This week's Project Censored program focuses on the hazards of hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") and federal officials' attempts to downplay some those hazards. 
 

U.S. EPA officials denied last year that groundwater contamination in Dimock, Pennsylvania was due to fracking, although EPA's own scientists knew that fracking was the culprit. And, whistleblowers say, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used a false name in internal correspondence about the Dimock situation. Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips interview Steve Horn, writer for www.desmogblog.com, discusses these stories. Then Richard Heinberg of the Post-Carbon Institute speaks about his new book "Snake Oil: How Fracking's False Promise of Plenty Imperils Our Future." Heinberg explains the hazards to water and air from fracking.

Huff and Phillips interview Rev. Nobuaki Hanaoka, Nagasaki bombing survivor; Professor Jacques Pauwels, author of The Myth of the Good War; and Andrew Phillips who talks about his 1984 interview with Wilfred Burtcher (one of the first journalists on the ground at Hiroshima after the bomb dropped).
