Recent reports confirms that shale gas recovered through high volume hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” will produce even more greenhouse gases than the burning of coal in the next two decades.
Let's call on Obama to immediately ban shale fracking in the US and invest in clean energy instead to save our climate.

      FRACKING CAUSES EARTHQUAKES!!!

      FRACKING CAUSES EARTHQUAKES!!!

      This is a KNOWN SCIENTIFIC FACT.

      WHEN will Lawmakers and wealthy Corporate Heads REALIZE that they are NOT SAFE BEHIND THEIR GATED COMMUNITIES???

      HOW MANY EARTHQUAKES in "unaccustomed places" will it take to WAKE LAWMAKERS UP!

      Fracking causes tremors DEEP WITHIN THE EARTH -- i.e., it causes EARTHQUAKES. This has been KNOWN for a while!

      There will BE MORE EARTHQUAKES -- MORE DAMAGE -- FOR SURE, UNLESS ALL FRACKING IS STOPPED!!!
