End Fracking & Other Corporate Environmental Poisons

started 04/17/11 - This post is primarily for the purpose of promoting actions on ch.o which do not get as much publicity as those promoted by ch.o and/or by powerful activist organizations. 
♥   I have included those of the latter of this kind that I like.
♥   I will add new actions and remove closed ones as I find them.
♥   Periodically, I intend to send a list of new action links via Send Message to Participants.
♥   Comments/discussions/new FracAction links welcome.
♥   Since most of the ch.o Links and URLs are STILL not clickable or do not take you where you are going no matter what I've tried so far, PASTE the URLs into your browser addy box.
♥   NOTE: The FRAC Act bill numbers are different - see comments.

In case of confusion about this action:
This is an INDEX to OTHER actions I have found on ch.o so far on this issue that I think are worthy of promoting.
The idea is to go to the other actions and see if you want to sign them if you haven't already.
Ordinarily, one should be able to click on any of the URLs (or links) and they would go directly to these ch.o actions.
However, there seems to be a glitch in the system so this is not working on ch.o for ch.o URLs at the moment (and hasn't worked since the big change to the new "beta" system).
I have alerted helpdesk to this snafu and so hopefully it will be fixed one of these days/weeks/months.
If you do not know about URLs or PASTING, please see Petition Letter box below for a little tutorial.

92 Ask the New York State Health Department to Cap Airborne Mercury Emissions
- Molly Mann - NY -
There is plenty of evidence that fracking is dangerous without further "scientific studies" . . . I think a moratorium on cement making by this plant until it cleans up its act and ongoing oversight would be a better expenditure of resources. . . . Ani
