Petitioning Congress and White House

Eliminate environmental regulation exemptions for hydraulic fracturing.

Hydraulic fracturing in search of natural gas uses TONS of water and more than 500 chemicals to drill deep into the ground and "fracture" the earth below to release natural gas. This process has proven, despite the claims of oil and gas companies, that it is extremely harmful to nearby water and air supplies. There are well over 100,000 fracking wells in America with many more planned. Hydraulic fracturing is currently exempt from the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Safe Drinking Water Act. If we don't act now, the future health of children, and their ability to obtain safe drinking water, is at risk.
