If we are going to get a total ban on fracking -- the only thing that will protect our properties, our communities, and our own health -- YOU need to step up and DEMAND that corporations keep their filthy industry and related infrastructures (pipelines, compressor stations, blasting of bluffs to extract silica ("frac sand"), water withdrawal operations [taking clean water from aquifers and rivers that will be permanently contaminated and removed from the water cycle on which all life depends], dumping of radioactive frack waste in local landfills, drilling injection wells to store liquid waste, gas storage facilities, transportation depots, bomb trains, export terminals), out of our world.
DEMAND clean, renewable energy. DEMAND that legislators stop selling out our communities to be used as toxic dumping grounds.
WE THE PEOPLE say NO to being used as collateral damage, NO to fracking! NO FRACKING WAY!
