End Exploration for Natural Gas

Target: President Barack Obama

Goal: End exploration for natural gas

Recently two natural gas rigs drilling in the Gulf of Mexico have caught fire. Despite the fact that there are clean energy alternatives, companies are still drilling for fossil fuel and ruining our ecosystem. Demand Obama put an end to exploration for natural gas.

Natural gas is nonrenewable, explosive, contains CO2 as well as other dangerous greenhouse gases and requires very many pipelines. Regardless of these facts there is still a demand for natural gas as energy. Fracking, which is hydraulic fracturing, is the process used to get the oil and it is very dangerous to our ecosystem.

Fracking has an unending amount of negative consequences. Chemicals that are used in the process could rise to the surface, air pollution is a possibility, the amount of fresh water available could lessen. There is an entire multitude of harmful impacts fracking could have on earth, it is unacceptable to let this go on any longer. How many more fires or oil spills will there be before there is a sole reliance on other sources of energy such as wind or solar?

By signing this petition you are demanding a ban on hydraulic fracturing and the search for natural gas.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Obama,

As you may know there have recently been two gas rig fires in the gulf of Mexico recently. Despite the fact that there are clean energy alternatives, companies are still drilling for fossil fuel and ruining our ecosystem. The exploration for natural has must end.

Natural gas is nonrenewable, explosive, contains CO2 as well as other dangerous greenhouse gases and requires very many pipelines. Regardless of these facts the demand for natural gas as a source of energy is high. The risks of hydraulic fracturing, otherwise known as fracking, are even higher. Fracking has an unending amount of negative consequences. Chemicals that are used in the process could rise to the surface, air pollution is a possibility, health risks from contamination of a spill are factors to consider.

There is an entire multitude of harmful impacts fracking could have on earth, it is unacceptable to let this go on any longer. How many more fires or oil spills will there be before there is a sole reliance on other sources of cleaner energy such as wind or solar? I am imploring you to put an end to the search for natural gas. The environment won’t be able to sustain it.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
