THIS VIDEO DESCRIBES EXPERIENCES OF AMERICANS LIVING NEXT TO THE GAS COMPRESSOR STATIONS.
WE COULD HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THAT IN THE HUNTER VALLEY NEXT TO BROKE OR GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIPS.
We need to learn from experiences in the areas where the harm to human health is happening already.



Let’s learn from the past: Pam Judy speaks out on the health impacts of compressor stations.

Kirsi Jansa’s short video, “Gas Rush Stories Part 5: A Neighbor,“ highlights the story of Pam Judy, her husband, and her two children, who live 780 feet from a compressor station in Carmichaels, Green County Pennsylvania. Pam details the health problems that her and her family have suffered since the compressor station was installed: headaches, sore throats, nosebleeds, vertigo, mouth blisters, some of which have landed them in the emergency room.

Pam argues that we must look to the past to gain perspective on what is happening here in Pennsylvania, and what will continue to happen to our communities, our land, and the health of our citizens:

It wasn’t right when they were drilling into the Barnett shale in Texas. Many of those people in that area experience the same problems that I’m having right now and that drilling occurred several years ago. And they are just now conducting a long – term study.

Pam also argues in this 18 minute documentary, that we must learn from similar historic examples of toxic contamination, where the effects of a substance were not known or documented until it was too late.
