Don’t Allow Gas Companies to Pollute Drinking Water

Target: Michael D. Nedd, Acting Director, Bureau of Land Management

Goal: Don’t rescind regulations that protect drinking water for millions of Americans.

Waterways could soon face an increased threat from the damaging and possibly deadly effects of fracking due to a new Trump Administration attempt to scrap Obama-era laws. Like so much else, Trump’s only goal with this policy is to simply erase any trace of President Obama, even if that means potentially killing Americans in the process.

The Obama regulations hold fracking companies to higher construction standards and require that chemicals in fracking be publicly disclosed. However, the Trump administration says the regulations on fracking are “burdensome.”

To scrap these regulations would give giant gas companies the ability to knowingly pollute the drinking water of millions of Americans. They knowingly can leak toxic chemicals into waterways without alerting property owners. This destruction will be irreversible and deadly. Demand that the protections remain in place.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Nedd,

The Trump Administration is proposing to put millions of Americans at risk by removing regulations that protect drinking water from the effects of fracking. Donald Trump wants nothing more than to erase President Obama’s legacy, even if that means harming Americans.

The American people deserve to have access to clean and safe drinking water. Should the Trump Administration scrap these regulations, Trump will have cemented a legacy- one in which he’ll be remembered as the man who sent the environment and Americans to their death. I demand that your department not allow these regulations to be scrapped.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Trump and the republiCONs are raping and pillaging this country for entirely for their own enrichment at the expense of our wildlife, natural resources, and citizenry.

    Who is Trump paying off? Who is getting paid off? to undermine every step forward we made into protecting this planet before that con artist took office?

  2. Susan Fong says:

    Corrupt Trump and his morally bankrupt Republican Congress only care about making the fossil fuel industry even richer than they already are. The fossil fuel industry gives millions of dollars to elect Republicans to office who will then act as puppets for their benefactors. The health of our Earth and its inhabitants should matter more than fossil fuel companies who want to save money by taking shortcuts which harm our water, air, and soil. This is despicable and irresponsible. Why do people vote for these Republican bastards?

  3. It is unbelievable that our politicians cannot even guarantee that we have safe drinking water. Thanks for everyone who voted for Trump. He is ruining the environment, believes in cruelty to animals, and can’t even keep HIS own people in the WH.

  4. Heather Brophy says:

    Remember we pay you to protect not to seek and destroy!

  5. It is amazing, how one idiot, can destroy, what was wrought
    with due diligence at one time.

  6. Turn your faucet on and light it? Odd/dirty water? Never had an earthquake before? Need to have your water tested daily before drinking any? Yep, they’ve got it covered because THEY drink purified and rarified water. After all, it’s just the peons who drink water from their tap!

  7. Michael D. Nedd, Acting Director, Bureau of Land Management:

    Are you aware that “To scrap these regulations would give giant gas companies the ability to knowingly pollute the drinking water of millions of Americans. “?????????????

    Don’t rescind regulations that protect drinking water for millions of Americans.

  8. The greatest crime is that we, the public have to fight for clean water! No wonder that people have a trust-issue with governments and corporations!

  9. Clean water should be the right of every citizen. That the people of America are now having to fight Trump and big money hungry corporations for this right is despicable.
    Good luck – I hope you win the good fight !!
