Suspend Fracking and the Spread of its Toxic Chemicals

Target: Jared Polis, Governor of Colorado

Goal: Suspend fracking operations due to rise in illnesses.

Fracking wells are dispersing chemicals as far as 2,000 feet away from their drilling sites. This increase in toxic chemicals has led to an increase in illnesses for residents near the Colorado drilling sites. Illnesses include nausea, nosebleeds, and headaches.

New scientific studies estimate that toxic chemicals are spreading anywhere from 500 to 2,000 feet. These chemicals include benzene and toulene at 10 times the recommended levels. Water pollution may also be occurring, as is toxic burnoff.

All fracking operations must be suspended until more research can be conducted on the rise in toxic chemicals and on the rise in illnesses. Sign the petition to demand the protection of the environment and nearby residents.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Governor Polis,

Fracking in Colorado is spreading toxic chemicals as far as 2,000 feet away from the fracking sites. Residents are suffering from nausea, nosebleeds, headaches, and other short-term illnesses. Meanwhile, both water and air are being polluted by these dangerous chemicals.

I demand that fracking in the state be halted until more research can be done into the environmental and health effects of this practice.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Suspend fracking operations due to rise in illnesses.

    This will not be suspended while Trump is the President. This arsehole Trump is destroying America and all their Laws that protect the environment and all the precious and innocent Wildlife and all animals.

    With information at our fingertips I wonder why some government administrators play the Stupid Game?

    Fracking is dangerous and harmful to all life – need more earth quakes?
