Get rid of all ‘forever chemicals’ May 1, 2023

Melissa Troutman, WildEarth Guardians | Santa Fe New Mexican

A new report from Physicians for Social Responsibility reveals “forever chemicals,” called PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances), have been extensively used for drilling and fracking by New Mexico’s oil and gas industry for at least a decade. New Mexicans living near or working in the industry face dangerous potential exposure risks via leaks, spills and contaminated soil or water. A lack of disclosure and poor management of oil and gas waste adds to the risk of PFAS exposure near thousands of oil and gas sites across the state.
