We need a ban on fracking!
Obama’s energy plan, drawing upon so-called “all-of-the-above” energy policy, calls for ramped-up domestic production of gas and oil through drilling and fracking. We need an energy policy that transitions to clean, renewable energy, not one that relies upon polluting tar sands and dangerous fracking practices.
On Friday, January 25th, call Obama at 1-888-660-2594 anytime during the day to tell him we need a ban on fracking. With more than 170 environmentalist groups, the newly formed Americans Against Fracking is helping to organize the call-in day, and local residents in BloNo are helping with the effort!
For information on the local campaign, visit the fracking issue page at Illinois People’s Action.
From Americans Against Fracking:
President Obama’s so-called “clean energy” plan calls for the rapid expansion of domestic production of natural gas and oil through drilling and fracking. Right now, President Obama is also facing several key decisions about natural gas exports and whether to open additional federal lands and protected areas to fracking. Tell President Obama that it’s time to pursue a clean energy future and reject policies that facilitate fracking and drilling for oil and natural gas. What do to:
A) On January 25, call President Obama at 1-888-660-2594 and tell him: “fracking threatens the air we breathe, the water we drink, the communities we love and the climate on which we all depend. Don’t pursue policies that promote fracking and the export of natural gas. We need to ban fracking now!”
