Hydraulic* Fracturing* Posters


After graduating, I found out that a Hydro-Fracking company was set to Frack the shale in New York State near my former college and the NYC watershed. I learned about fracking in my senior year and hated the idea of the potential effects on the population and environment. I set out to research and create some informational books and a poster series to help people learn about all the negative effects and vote against the proposed fracking site.

The amount of trucks and construction equipment used meant that huge trucks would use small roads, destroying the roads, noise pollution and potential spillage from the transport trucks.

Fracking companies liked to give the distance between towers to let people know that they wouldn’t be invasive. In reality the distance was minimal and would allow a company to create up to 8 towers in a few acres.
