Fracking is the process of injecting a massive volume of water, sand, and chemicals underground at high pressure to break up a rock formation, allowing oil or gas to flow up the well.
Fracking threatens the air we breathe, the water we drink, the communities we love and the climate on which we depend.
Please sign the petition below. We’ll be delivering these signatures to your elected officials.
Fracking involves the injection of millions of gallons of “frack fluid” into dense shale rock in order to crack the rock and release oil or natural gas. Frack fluid contains any combination of up to nearly 600 chemicals along with millions of gallons of water and sand. People who live in areas where fracking occurs experience contaminated water, reduced property value, increased truck traffic, loud noise, explosions and even illness.
