Tell President Obama and Congress: America Needs a Nationwide Ban on Fracking Now
Our friends Josh Fox, director of GASLAND, and actor, director and activist Mark Ruffalo traveled to Washington D.C. together to demand that the federal government finally intervene in what has become a nightmare for thousands of people across the U.S.: inherently dangerous gas drilling methods employed by an out-of-control industry operating in secrecy, with the benefit of sweeping exemptions to our most basic environmental and public health protections.
Josh and Mark demanded not only that the American public finally get an unbiased scientific assessment of the true risks of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, and that the gas industry finally play by the same rules as all other industries.
They called on President Obama and Congress to act immediately to stop existing hydraulic fracturing across America, and work to alleviate the growing public health crisis facing communities affected by gas drilling.
Stand with us in calling on President Obama and Congress to impose an immediate nationwide ban on all fracking!
