Unleashing the American LNG ‘Trojan Horse’

While the CEO of the largest US shale gas producer keeps talking about “unleashing” Marcellus Shale natural gas, and more specifically, it’s condensed liquid form, LNG, we’re suddenly snapped back to its radioactive realities.

Reporter JUSTIN NOBEL spelled it out in his June 9, 2022 story, As U.S. LNG Expands in Europe, a Hidden Threat Grows.

Marcellus shale is radioactive
This little talked about, yet well known fact, was first spelled out in this professional paper, 62 years ago:

More professional data has followed since then, but I found, Radon in Natural Gas from Marcellus Shale by Marvin Resnikoff, back in January 2012 of particular interest:

“The potential environmental and public health impact of radon in natural gas from the Marcellus Shale formation is enormous. Wellhead concentrations in Marcellus Shale are up to 70 times the average in natural gas wells throughout the U.S.”

Marvin Resnikoff, Ph.D.
And if you’re still cooking with gas, this:

“Being an inert gas, radon will not be destroyed when natural gas is burned in a kitchen stove. The radon is not oxidized and is not made benign or non-radioactive in the burning process.”
