Ready for Radon? with Jeff Zimmerman
Updated: May 16, 2019
As if the producers of natural gas didn’t already have enough headaches with radioactive waste, scientists and medical experts are now beginning to warn about high levels of radon in the gas from the Marcellus shale formation. The gas currently being brought to NYC from Louisiana has low levels of radon that decay during its travel time to New York. In contrast, gas from nearby Pennsylvania (and New York, if Governor Cuomo doesn’t stop fracking) has high levels of radon that won’t have a chance to decay before the gas gets to homes, apartments and restaurants in New York.
On this edition of Green Street, Patti and Doug talk about the potential heath threat of radon with attorney and radon expert Jeff Zimmerman.
