Tell Congress: Stop the Fracking Frenzy

Action: Stop Pollution

February 10, 2014   Action Alert ID# 132

 

A disastrous trade deal called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is being negotiated behind closed doors. If passed, it could severely hinder our efforts to stop fracking, the dangerous fossil fuel extraction technique that pollutes our environment, threatens public health and hurts wildlife, from California condors to San Joaquin kit foxes.

The TPP would allow corporations to sue if they think their profits are in jeopardy -- even if the challenge to the company comes from a citizen-approved ban on fracking.

Just last year one enterprise sued Canada for $250 million after the people of Quebec passed a moratorium on fracking under the St. Lawrence River. We cannot allow corporations to run roughshod over local communities' efforts to protect their health and environment from this toxic practice.

The trade deal could also encourage an expansion of dangerous fracking for shale gas by automatically approving future exports of U.S. liquefied natural gas to all parties to the agreement.

President Obama is asking Congress to "fast-track" approval of the TPP by holding an up-or-down vote without allowing for full debate. But we can't let this deal get jammed through Congress.

Take action now and urge your state's representatives to vote no on fast-tracking the TPP.
