Obama: Keep Your Promise on Fracking and Require Full Chemical Disclosure

    1. Sponsored by

In his State of the Union speech, President Obama promised that drilling and fracking for natural gas would happen “without putting the health and safety of our citizens at risk.”

Oil and gas companies are trying to get Obama to go back on his word.

The Obama administration is preparing rules that could make it easier for communities to protect themselves from the toxic chemicals pumped into the ground during the controversial technology called hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.

But the oil and gas industry is lobbying hard to dramatically weaken the rules – and in recent statements, the administration has signaled that it may cave to industry demands.

The oil and gas industry has gotten used to operating in the shadows for too long – hiding chemical information, fighting against right-to-know laws, silencing families who speak out.

We need to push back and remind the President of the promise he made to all of us – that fracking for natural gas would not come at the expense of people’s health.

Will you contact the White House today?
