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.

  • The dangers of fracking to secure rock oil are widely known and condemned. Bann this practice in the USA.
  • Fracking is the most important issue of this very moment. It is not repairable, it causes earthquakes as it has been proven in Oklahoma and that is just the beginning. All one has to do is look at the very word “fracking”. What an unbelievable horrible assault on the earth and our health. Maybe fracking the area in front of Trump tower, or maybe Maralargo, would “drive the point” home.

  • Coming to a theater near all of us. We have leaders that put profit over life. Once they poison the water here in the US I guess those same people will be flying in their own water supply!
