The Center for Humans & Nature explores and challenges ideas about who we are as humans and how we might better relate to each other and the whole community of life. They pose big-picture questions, and here they post essays responding to the question: “Does fracking violate human rights?”

This week is the international Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal on the Human Rights Impact of Fracking. The PPT has collected people’s stories on the threat of fracking and climate change to human rights and the rights of nature. The stories here will be part of the evidence that is presented to the international panel of judges.
