In a letter to President Obama, Congress, and all citizens, Josh Fox details recommendations on how to proceed safely with the myriad concerns about hydro-fracking. Still, the Obama Administration has up until now ignored the public health threat posed by hydraulic fracturing. In a letter to a Catskills Citizen, the Energy Department dismisses the risk of drinking-water contamination and compares the thousands of gallons of toxic chemicals used to frack a gas well to “household consumer products”!
Send a message to President Obama demanding a safe and sensible approach to fracking.
Read the entire letter to President Obama from Catskill Citizens and Catskill Mountainkeeper.
Although the ten million residents of New York City and Philadelphia rely on the Delaware Basin for their drinking water, no public hearings will be spent in either of those cities, as the Delaware River Basin Commission prepares to green light drilling of test wells in river areas that could effect the drinking water of 15 million people. What are they drinking?
By taking action here, you can demand an extended comment period and additional public hearings before the DRBC greenlights fracking in the Delaware Basin.
