Gary Knell, CEO of National Public Radio: Stop promoting hydrofracking natural gas as good for the environment

    1. Petition by

      Dennis Higgins

      Otego, NY

People trust NPR for investigative and unbiased coverage of the news. But their promotion of the American Natural Gas Alliance commitment to the environment calls into question their even handed approach to this volatile issue. It is like denying climate change. The adverse health and environmental impact of hydrofracking are well documented. Some states (Vermont) and some countries (France) have completely banned it. In NY, many citizens are fighting the industry's attempt to start fracking here. NPR should not promote fracking for gas.

Stop promoting hydrofracking natural gas as good for the environment

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      It is terrifying that our environment is being destroyed, and NPR has "bought" into the this massive propaganda campaign to convince us otherwise! Your participation compromises how you cover this, what I would say is one of the most important issues of the day, concerning the future of ALL of us!

      Fracking is the most dangerous type of energy solution. People learning all the dangers how come the radio station does not care about their kids and wildlife's future???
