Don’t Destroy State’s Only National Forest

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

Goal: Don’t destroy Ohio’s only national forest with oil and gas drilling.

The only national forest in Ohio may soon face destruction by oil and natural gas drilling. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is set to auction off several pieces of land in the state’s protected national forest for drilling.

This national forest is near a prominent pipeline, which makes it prime territory for gas companies. However, fracking has proven to be a dangerous and damaging industry, one that will forever change the landscape of the forest.

Trees will be cut down. Water will be contaminated. Animals may lose their habitat. Explosions and spills may occur. Even earthquakes have happened due to fracking. Sign the petition and demand that Ohio’s sole national forest be protected.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Nedd,

Ohio is home to only one national forest. However, that forest now faces destruction, with several pieces of its land being auctioned off for oil and natural gas drilling. Time and time again, America has seen land destroyed, water polluted, and animals killed due to fracking.

Ohio’s only national forest must be protected from these devastating and irreversible effects. A national forest is something to be protected and preserved for future generations. Please revoke your call for bids and instead protect Ohio’s natural landscape from destruction.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This is absolutely appalling. The government is basically allowing oil and gas corporations to destroy the country.
    How can they sell off a national forest? And what are they planning to do with the money they get from selling the forest?
    If this keeps happening on a large scale, America will soon be one big toxic lifeless wasteland.
