I do a lot of reading about oil and gas drilling, as many of you do, and I’m often frustrated to see reporting on a peer-reviewed study on a particular topic. I’m usually left wondering how these findings relate to previous studies in the same area.
Today I ran into two amazing sources of compiled information on scientific studies. They’ll keep me busy for awhile. I invite you to check them out as well.
Physicians, Scientists and Engineers for Healthy Energy Database
The first source of information is a huge database of scientific peer-reviewed articles maintained by an organization called Physicians Scientists & Engineers for Healthy Energy. The database can be sorted by topic, author, or date, and you can find it by clicking on the button below.

Concerned Health Professionals of New York Compendium
A second source, a compendium of peer-reviewed articles, presentations, public testimony, reports, statements and videos, was published on July 14, 2014 by Concerned Health Professionals of New York, an initiative to call on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to conduct a comprehensive Health Impact Assessment (HIA) on high-volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing.
The publication is a 70-page document full of fascinating information. You can download it below.
