    • Indeed; true, Rebecca.

      Maybe this fracking still happens because the bosses of fracking corporations usually themselves don’t live where the fracking happens 🙂

  3. The House of Representatives just passed a bill that would block the federal government from enforcing important fracking safeguards and delay an EPA study that would provide families with important information on how fracking is affecting their drinking water.

    We can stop this bill in the Senate, but only if our Senators hear from us now.

    Please urge your Senators to reject this bill and protect us from the dangers of fracking.

    Thanks for all you do!

    A dangerous fracking bill just passed through the House of Representatives. We can block it in the Senate but only with your help. Email your Senators here >>

    Does this look normal to you?

    We need more protections against
    the dangers of fracking, not less!

    Tell the Senate: Say NO to
    giving frackers free reign >>

    Dear Activist,

    You’ve heard about fracking, right?

    The natural gas extraction process that has caused running water taps to light on fire in Pennsylvania and triggered earthquakes in Ohio?

    While we don’t know everything about its environmental impacts yet, any process where you’re going to be shooting a huge amount of water, sand, and chemicals into our lands – and where there are many reports of damaging health effects and animals dying – should be a top priority for government oversight.

    But guess what the House of Representatives just passed?

    A bill that would block the federal government from enforcing important fracking safeguards on our public lands and delay an EPA study that would provide American families with important information on how fracking is affecting their drinking water.

    Don’t let the Senate frack this up: email your senators now to make sure they stop this dangerous fracking bill now!

    Yep. House Republican leadership just decided that polluters don’t have enough free reign to plunder our public lands.

    So they passed a bill that will block our government from making sure that oil and gas companies stick to the rules that were set up to try to avoid chemical spills and water contamination. And now Senator Orrin Hatch has introduced a corresponding bill in the Senate.

    This could be a fracking fiasco.

    The good news is that we have a lot of environmental champions in the Senate who will stand up against this terrible bill. But as I write this, I’m sure that the natural gas and oil companies are sending all their high-paid lobbyists to Capitol Hill to try to get this pushed through.

    So your senators need to hear your voice now, calling on them to protect us against the dangers of fracking.

    Tell your senators to push for stronger standards on fracking, not gut the protections we already have. Send a message here >>

    The health of our communities, future of our lands, and survival of our wildlife depends on what you do today. So thanks for speaking out now to stop this dangerous bill.

    Best,

  4. Révélation WikiLeaks : l’industrie pétrolière se prépare pour la plus importante campagne environnementale jamais connue

    SELMA FRANSSEN

    WikiLeaks a dévoilé une série de documents qui révèlent à quel point les compagnies pétrolières se sentent acculées par les activistes. Les experts pensent que l’opposition aux projets dangereux pour l’environnement, notamment l’exploitation des sables bitumeux, pourrait à terme devenir la plus grande campagne pour l’environnement de tous les temps. Ces révélations éclairent les méthodes des multinationales pour appréhender la résistance (subdivisée en catégories allant de “réaliste” à “radicale”).

  5. Over the past year, the Environmental Protection Agency has repeatedly shut down its own fracking-related water contamination investigations after being pressured by the oil and gas industry.

    Thanks to EPA whistleblowers, the Los Angeles Times reported that the fracking investigation in Dimock, PA was shut down despite evidence from EPA’s water tests that Dimock’s drinking water was polluted.

    Please join Food & Water Watch in telling EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and President Obama to make sure the EPA does its job.

    Thanks for all you do!

    Is the EPA Covering Up for the Oil and Gas Industry?
    Tell the EPA to Re-Open investigations into Water Contamination from Fracking

    Don’t Let the Oil and Gas Industry Get Away with Fracking Contamination

    Tell the EPA to Re-Open Investigations into Water Contamination from Fracking

    Dear Supporter,

    If you’re concerned about the safety of our water and the environment, I know you’ll want to hear about this:

    Whistle-blowers from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently revealed that, in 2012, the EPA abandoned an investigation of fracking-related water contamination in Dimock, Pennsylvania after an EPA staff member raised the flag that it was likely caused by fracking.

    There’s an unfortunate trend here, because they’ve also abandoned their fracking-related water contamination investigations in Pavillion, Wyoming; and Weatherford, Texas.

    This is unbelievable, and totally unacceptable.

    Will you join me today in calling on President Obama and EPA administrator Gina McCarthy to immediately re-open these investigations into fracking contamination?

    Fracking is the process of injecting a mixture of toxic chemicals, sand and millions of gallons of water deep below ground to break up, or fracture, shale rock formations to extract oil and gas. Since many fracking wells are drilled directly through or near our water resources, there is a great possibility of contamination of drinking water from fracking.

    Tell the EPA to re-open the investigations into water contamination from fracking!

    Food & Water Watch is working closely with our allies across the country to ban fracking before it starts, but in the places where it’s already happening, it’s critical that the EPA investigate and hold oil and gas companies accountable for the contamination they cause. The people that live in fracked areas can’t live without safe drinking water.

    Take action today to make sure any water contamination from fracking is investigated.

    Thanks for taking action,
