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

President Biden and congressional Democrats have worked to undo much of Trump’s anti-science climate policies over the past year, but there’s a critical move our legislators have shied away from thus far – a unilateral ban on fracking.

President Biden has legal authority to stop new fracking and drilling on public lands, and even vowed to ban new drilling on public lands during his campaign. But the reality of that is tough – even Biden’s executive order to simply pause new leases was overturned by a Trump-appointed district court judge, and new drilling and fracking permits continue to be offered. It’s clear we need our legislators on board in this existential fight. Our planet literally is depending on it.

Call or email your representatives and demand they introduce and pass legislation banning fracking on ALL US lands – public AND private.

Fracking contaminates drinking water, drains natural water resources and intensifies droughts, increases the chances 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 global effect. 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 so again now.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your representatives and tell them a blanket ban on fracking is essential to stopping climate change – demand they introduce and pass critical legislation to protect our planet!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demanding the Senate remove Rand Paul from his committees for inciting violence against Dr. Fauci, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
