Each fracking well produces a tiny amount of gas – thousands of wells are required in order for companies to attempt to make a profit.Up to 95% of a well’s gas is released in the first 3 years, wells are then routinely abandoned.

There are currently 3 million abandoned wells in the U.S. and recent research from Princeton University suggests each and every one is very bad news for us and our rapidly changing climate.
