Keep Florida's water clean, ban fracking

Action: Stop Pollution

April 1, 2015   Action Alert ID# 202

 

Florida may be world renowned for its beaches, its sun, and its abundance of wildlife like alligators, sea turtles and panthers. But, with your help, one thing it'll never be known for is fracking.

Please take a moment now to let your elected officials know you support clean water and an immediate ban on fracking in the state.

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is the dangerous process of blasting huge volumes of water mixed with toxic chemicals underground to crack open rock formations and extract oil and gas. And the fracking-induced oil and gas boom has transformed the American energy landscape, undercutting clean energy and furthering our addiction to fossil fuels while polluting our air, wasting water and threatening wildlife.

Four bills now in the Florida state legislature -- House Bills 1205 and 1209, as well as Senate Bills 1468 and 1582 -- would allow the amount of water and chemicals used in fracking to be hidden as "trade secrets," and, more importantly, let this dangerous practice continue. Supporters of the bills claim that at least some regulation is better than none, but they ignore the fact that two other bills call for a complete ban on fracking in the state.
