Don't Let the Oil and Gas Industry Write Its Own Rules for Our Public Lands

    1. Sponsored by

11 times. That’s how many times the oil and gas industry met with the Department of the Interior, pressuring officials with the Bureau of Land Management to weaken proposed fracking regulations for federal public lands.

The result? A set of fracking regulations that would make former Vice President and Halliburton CEO Dick Cheney proud.

Not only can companies hide fracking chemical information behind trade secret claims, they won’t have to test individual wells’ cement casings—a critical barrier between fracking chemicals and underground aquifers. Our federal public lands provide drinking water for millions of Americans. This weak policy will put these drinking water sources at risk.

The oil and gas industry got its chance. Now it’s YOUR turn. Let’s make it count.

      You would think by now Government Agencies would know better then to believe any thing that Big Oil and/or the Gas Industry had to say....If any thing the Government Agencies should do the opposite of what Big Oil and/or Gas Industry recommends.

      Our Public Lands and National Parks are for the People, not for the Big Oil corporations to ruin in the name of greed. It's time they learn that We, the People Do Not want fracking on this pristine landscape. Ask them what their answer is to the environmental disaster taking place right now in Canada. There is Nothing they can say that will prove this same thing won't happen in America...as it has been happening, just on smaller scales. We only have a finite amount of fresh water on the whole Planet. Fracking takes More than its fair share and returns nothing but chemical pollution. What will your grandchildren say about this when our waterfalls aren't water but chemicals from fracking?
