  1. Imagine starting out on a hike or driving through your favorite national forest, and this is your view: swaths of trees that have been clearcut, hordes of trucks flying along back roads and fracking rigs scattered across the landscape.

    Because our public lands are currently open to fracking, this dirty and dangerous image could become more common for visitors to our national forests and wilderness areas. Sign the petition if you think our national forests and other public lands should be protected from fracking.

    As a Colorado native, I am lucky to have the awe-inspiring Rocky Mountains and many areas of public land right in my backyard. Just the other weekend, I went hiking in Arapahoe National Forest. I cannot imagine going out and seeing a clearing with a huge fracking well pad, instead of these beautiful trees. Our national forests and public lands are too precious to frack.

    But fracking is already happening in national forests and public lands across the country — from Pennsylvania’s Allegheny National Forest to the border of Glacier National Park; from illegal fracking in the Florida Everglades to George Washington National Forest in Virginia (which was recently approved for fracking).

    Thanks to the incredible opposition to fracking that has grown across the country, U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-2) and co-sponsor Jan Schakowsky (IL-9) introduced a bill to ban fracking on all public lands. This bill is the strongest piece of federal legislation against fracking to be introduced to date.

    While Food & Water Watch members have already made it clear that fracking should be banned on our public lands (along with allies, we submitted more than 650,000 comments from people like you against the Obama administration’s proposed rules for fracking on public lands), the oil and gas industry is pushing back. They will do everything they can to kill this bill so they can keep fracking our public lands.

    That’s why we need to make sure that this bill has an impressive list of co-sponsors and supporters in Congress. Ask your representative to co-sponsor this bill to protect our public lands from fracking.

    I want to be able to enjoy our parks and forests for years to come, and I want to make sure there will be protected wilderness for future generations to experience. Join me in standing up to protect our public lands from fracking today.

    Thanks for taking action,
