Through dozens of city and county resolutions, the people of Florida have spoken loud and clear: We do not want oil and gas companies taking over our land, destroying our ecosystems and crushing efforts to protect ourselves from fracking.
Fracking is an inherently dangerous activity that contaminates huge amounts of water, jeopardizes public safety, contributes to global warming and destroys wildlife habitat. Industry-friendly regulations won't protect us or our priceless natural resources; you can count on that.
Oil companies already have their eyes set on fracking Florida's Everglades, the largest subtropical wilderness left in the lower 48. It would only take one spill to spoil this home for dozens of imperiled wildlife. A single accident would also deal a serious blow to tourism as well as the source of drinking water for one in three Floridians.
Unfortunately we can expect a relentless push from oil and gas companies for access to drill and frack. That's why our only hope is in a permanent ban.
