Greenhouse Gas Emissions Associated with Projected Future Marcellus Shale Development
Renee Santoro, Program Director, Energy Environment Program
New Marcellus development boom will triple greenhouse gas emissions from Pennsylvania’s natural gas sector.
Comparative Analysis of Environmental Impacts of Utility-Scale and Distributed Solar
Teresa Dayrit, PSE Healthy Energy Intern
Solar photovoltaic technology provides the opportunity to generate electricity with very low greenhouse gas emissions. However, it has hazardous material, water and land use impacts associated with mining, manufacturing, operational use, and end-of-life. We detail some of these environmental impacts, as well as approaches to minimizing these impacts.
Public health implications of environmental noise associated with unconventional oil and gas development
Jake Hays, Michael McCawley, Seth B.C. Shonkoff
Our peer-reviewed analysis indicates that unconventional oil and gas development (UOGD) produces noise at levels that could potentially increase the risk of adverse health outcomes.
