  3. There’s no amount of transparency that will make fracking safe, but disclosure of the chemicals used in the process will give communities more power to fight back.

    EPA is accepting public comments on whether or not to require fracking companies to disclose the toxic chemicals they use. Please join Food & Water Watch in telling EPA that fracking chemicals must be exposed.

    Thanks for all you do!

    The Chemicals Used in Fracking Should Not Be a Secret.

    EPA: Expose Fracking Chemicals!

    Dear Activist,

    Imagine finding out that you’ve been unknowingly drinking water contaminated by fracking, the extreme process of extracting oil and natural gas by pumping toxic chemicals underground. Now, imagine that you don’t know, and aren’t allowed to know, what’s making your water toxic.

    Demand that the EPA expose the chemicals being pumped underground by fracking companies.

    This scenario is a reality for a growing number of U.S. communities, like Dimock, PA. Ray Kemble, pictured to the right, became a vocal advocate for his community’s right to clean water after the gas industry ruined his water supply. The situation in Dimock has gotten so bad that Ray and his neighbors need to have clean water shipped in. It’s unacceptable that any community in the U.S. should be put through this, but collectively, we can do something about it.

    The EPA recently opened up a public comment period on whether or not to require fracking companies to reveal the chemicals they use, many of which we know to be carcinogens or endocrine disruptors.

    Stand with people like Ray — demand that the EPA require disclosure of fracking chemicals.

    Despite the serious risks involved in fracking, the process is exempt from key pieces of the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act, and it hasn’t happened by accident. The oil and gas industry has spent years — and millions of dollars — lobbying Congress to keep the chemicals they use a secret, and to put their profits over our basic right to a healthy environment. And there’s no end to how low the industry will sink to protect their bottom line. One company recently attempted to pay off Pennsylvania residents to exempt them from legal liability for any current or future mishaps.

    The list of underhanded industry tactics is too long to fit in an email, so let me make one thing clear: there’s no amount of transparency that will make fracking safe. Disclosure of the chemicals used in the process will give communities more power to fight back, but if your water is being poisoned, the real solution is to stop the poisoning. That’s why we need a ban on fracking across the country, and more urgently than ever — chemical spills associated with drilling and fracking were up 17% last year.

    Tell the EPA to take the first step and require disclosure of the toxic chemicals used in fracking.

    It’s the job of the Environmental Protection Agency to protect us from polluting special interests like the oil and gas industry. We know they’re going to fight new regulations tooth and nail, so we need to flood the EPA’s inbox with our outrage so that frackers can’t get away with contaminating our water in secrecy.

    Make sure the EPA does its job to protect the public by submitting your comment today.

    Thanks for taking action,
