For every 1,000 signatures NationofChange will send a letter to the EPA and Congress demanding that they pass legislation that bans fracking nationwide, permanently.

Fracking, the process of releasing natural gas by injecting huge amounts of water, chemicals and sand into shale rock formations, has become highly controversial due to its connections to multiple health problems.

The process of fracking has been found to contaminate local water supplies . Fracking has also been linked to earthquakes, such as in Oklahoma, can worsen asthma for nearby residents, and puts infants and children at risk for developing heart and lung problems. 

Only 30-50% of chemicals used in fracking are recovered after the job is done. Which means the rest are left in the ground, leeching into our soil and potentially our groundwater. 

Despite all this, the use of fracking continues to spread across the United States. 

Fracking is causing serious health problems. Help NationofChange tell Congress that fracking needs to be banned now.

  • When I’m bleeding from a serious cut, I don’t find a knife to make the injury worse; I immediately seek some remedy that will stop the bleeding. Our situation re the planet Earth is the same: we cannot tolerate even one decision or action that further threatens the delicate balance of ecological health. Fracking is a decision/action that will worsen the damage we’ve done to our home. From the fracking process to the disastrous burning of fossil fuels that result from the fracking, the entire scenario is just one more major threat to the continued life on planet Earth. Stop the fracking! Now!
