Today’s Action: It’s time to ban all fracking!

President Biden is undoing much of Trump’s anti-science climate policies, including reinstating Obama-era regulations on emissions and introducing a new fuel economy requirement for auto manufacturers, creating a civilian climate corps that focuses on conservation, and halting new oil and gas drilling on federal lands and in federal waters. And thank goodness, because we’re running out of time.

But there’s a big move Biden has thus far shied away from, which former presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — and even now Vice President Harris — support: a unilateral ban on fracking. Now that UK officials are reconsidering the effects of fracking, the position of the US is absolutely critical to securing an environmentally sound future for all.

Call or email your members of Congress and demand they introduce and pass legislation banning fracking on ALL US lands — public AND private!

Fracking is a type of drilling that involves splitting rock deep underground by blasting it with high-pressure, chemically laced liquid and sand. It contaminates community drinking water, drains natural water resources to the point of wilted landscapes and frequent forest fires, increases the occurrence of earthquakes, and elevates methane emissions…

…and methane in our atmosphere traps heat at 84 times the rate of CO2. The spike in US fracking in recent years is having a devastating, negative effect on the planet. Banning fracking is an absolutely essential step in overcoming our rapid slip into point-of-no-return climate-change damage.

There’s a LOT of big money keeping fracking in place, particularly in certain states. But we’ve overcome these obstacles before and must do it now. Our planet literally is depending on it.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your members of Congress and tell them a blanket ban on fracking is essential to curbing catastrophic climate change. Demand they introduce and pass legislation without delay!
