Petition: Ban Fracking Now!
The idea that fracking helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions is industry spin.
Fracking’s Bridge to Climate Chaos: Exposing the Fossil Fuel Industry’s Deadly Spin — new research from our affiliated organization, Food & Water Watch — shows that pervasive leaks of methane (a dangerous greenhouse gas) make fracked gas as dangerous as coal, underscoring the toll that fracking has taken on our air, water, and climate.
The only way toward a renewable future is to ban fracking and to stop all new fossil fuel development. New legislation (S.3247 - A bill to ban the practice of hydraulic fracturing, and for other purposes) proposed by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the bold step we need to move us in the right direction.
