Cut Fracking Wastewater Pollution

Target: Andrew Wheeler, Administrator of Environmental Protection Agency

Goal: Ban wastewater dumping by fracking sites.

The amount of wastewater polluted with toxic radiation and other carcinogens being dumped into our water supplies has shot up over 1000% in the last decade, according to a recent Duke study. Oil and gas manufacturers have been steadily dumping more polluting materials into the earth via wastewater than we have ever seen before, leaving our national water sources at risk of serious pollution. Scientists have released data concluding that even with conservation efforts in effect, in the next few decades there will still be a major increase in the amount of water being used and polluted by fracking waste.

Water is already a sacred commodity which is far too often overlooked or mistreated in this country. To allow so much water to be used and wasted for fracking is an abomination to the natural environment. The data predicts that we could use up to 50 times the amount of water in the future if we continue on this course. The EPA is one of the last centers that could stop this horrible pollution, so please stand with us in demanding some change out of Andrew Wheeler.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Wheeler,

The EPA has a choice to make when it comes to fracking; acknowledge publicly that the practice is killing the earth or keep allowing the earth to be killed by those who want to profit from its resources. Millions of gallons of wastewater enter our water supply every year. The longer we allow fracking to occur, the more toxic pollutants enter our streams and rivers.

You’ve got a decision to make and a side of history to stand on. Will you fight for environmental justice as the leader of the EPA? Please stand with us in demanding that we can no longer accept fracking as a respectable energy practice.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. By allowing such it clearly shows that there is no leadership!

    Voters make wiser choices.
    Think, know what you are expecting from the person you “hire” with your vote to manage your country.
    You are granting that person tremendous $$$ benefits and an enormous pension by having served only a few years.
    How much pension do you get for having slaved and struggled all your working life?
