Stop hydrocarbon project and protect India

This petition had 17 supporters

The Government of India is planning to extract hydrocarbon, that is shale gas from 31 different locations in the country. Extracting shale gas can cause irreversible damage to the environment and people living in the immediate surroundings of the site. Extracting shale gas using the current technology can deplete and pollute groundwater, cause earthquakes, release harmful chemicals into the environment and cause many severe damages. I request our Prime Minister to rather concentrate on renewable energy systems which seemed to be his pet project. We can generate hydrocarbon/methane by properly managing our biomass resources. Biomass such as the organic fraction of municipal solid waste, cow dung, effluent from food processing industries can be used for generating more methane and that too in a sustainable manner.
