Don’t Pollute Fresh Water with Massive Fracking Project

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

Goal: Don’t allow a major fracking project to move forward and pollute freshwater streams and springs.

Hundreds of thousands of acres of land and thousands of miles of freshwater streams and springs are in danger of pollution due to a massive fracking project. More than 600 square miles of open land in Nevada are scheduled to be leased to oil and gas companies.

This huge plan will cut through swaths of endangered habitat and interrupt some of the state’s most important freshwater streams. Fracking has been proven to emit dangerous chemicals into the land and water, cause explosions, and even cause earthquakes. Humans and animals have been sickened and even killed by its effects.

Nevada’s open land and the countless habitats it supports must be protected. Sign the petition and demand that the U.S. Bureau of Land Management not go through with this oil and gas lease that will destroy hundreds of thousands of acres of land.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Nedd,

Hundreds of thousands of acres of land, thousands of miles of freshwater streams and rivers, and hundreds of endangered species are threatened by your organization’s scheduled oil and gas lease in Nevada. Animals will die, water will be polluted, and fragile habitats will be destroyed if you allow this massive fracking project to move forward.

The negative effects of fracking are well known. Habitats, species, and human lives have already been destroyed by the practice. I ask that you not allow this to happen. Protect Nevada’s environment and citizens by throwing out the lease.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. No more fracking! Worst thing ever for humans, animals and the environment! Dangerous! Harmful! Toxic! Why would you? Earthquakes! Poison water! Explosions! Why?

  2. This is so bad for the environment. Our earthquakes are bad enough. Use good judgement for a change.

  3. Nevada is the driest state in the nation and fracking will only lead to a worsening water situation for people, for wildlife and for habitats, both human and animal. When the groundwater is destroyed Nevada has nothing to fall back on and the devastating impacts of fracking on the land itself are huge in an area where water and decent habitat is already scarce. Stupidest idea ever.

    When are those greedy,mindless corporate predators going to understand the damage they are doing to our environment the health of the people the irreversible destruction to our environment, the climate and our precious wildlife… They know that renewable sustained green energy is the way of the future, but like drowning people they are fighting with all they have to line their pockets, and the pockets of their cohorts by clinging to where the money lies for their corporations and clients. They do not care if it belongs in the previous century, and where forward looking countries are in the 21st century. This is reprehensible and a sad reflection on human decency and respect for others and their rights.

  5. Rosslyn Osborne says:

    Our planets oceans, forests and soils work constantly for humanity. They are acting as vast storehouses for greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane. Our planet’s astounding biodiversity provides for every single human need. Humans everywhere spend every working day connected to nature; by the foods we eat from the fertile soils and the natural water we drink all come from our generous earth, and we stake our very lives upon it.

  6. ALL FRACKING IS BAD FOR THE EARTH NOW.

  7. Thank you for the petition.
