Save the Planet from the Harmful Effects of Fracking

Target: Andrea Stewart-Cousins, Senate Majority Leader, New York State Senate

Goal: Ban all types of fracking in New York state.

Fracking has destroyed land, polluted water, caused earthquakes, and has even made an alarming number of United States citizens ill. Despite these dangers, the practice remains legal in most states. Sign the petition to demand that one state ban fracking in all its forms.

While hydraulic fracturing using water is banned in New York state, waterless fracking is still legal, despite all of the known dangers. Gelled propane hydraulic fracturing carries all the risk that normal fracking does, in addition to being explosive. State Senator Jen Metzger is working to add this type of fracking to the state’s ban.

To ban all forms of fracking would aid in the state’s fight to end fossil fuel use and would save countless habitats and living beings from danger. Sign the petition to show support for a widespread fracking ban in the state of New York.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear State Senator Stewart-Cousins,

Fracking has caused water pollution, has started fires, has caused earthquakes, and has sickened countless individuals. This is why so many nations and some U.S. states, like New York, have banned the practice. However, New York only bans fracking using water. Gelled propane fracturing remains legal, but is still just as dangerous and even more deadly due to its proclivity to start explosions.

I ask that you support State Senator Jen Metzger’s ban on all forms of hydraulic fracturing. Such a ban will help protect the state of New York and all of its living beings.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
