Rein in the fracking industry

Sierra Club - Explore, enjoy and protect the planet

Dear Friends,

Tell EPA to protect our communities and special places from oil and gas drilling.Take action

Take action!

Good news! EPA is considering how to regulate the oil and gas industry.

From beginning to end, fracking only fuels climate disaster. As EPA decides how to regulate this out-of-control industry, let’s remind them we have one chance to get it right and protect our communities and public lands from dirty and dangerous fracking.

Send your letter today, and tell EPA to protect our communities and special places from oil and gas drilling.

Right now, EPA is using outdated information and drastically underestimates how much methane escapes during the drilling process. Pound for pound, methane’s impact on global warming is 86 times greater than carbon dioxide. 1 Will you tell EPA to go back and use the most up-to-date information as they consider how to rein in the oil and gas industry?

The natural gas industry has their eye on a profitable prize — exporting liquefied natural gas to other countries. We already know how fracking pollutes our air and water, how close these drilling rigs are to the places we love, and have seen the extreme weather events fueled by climate-changing gases like methane.

Send your message to EPA. Tell them to take stand against climate change and put the health of our communities before the profits of the oil and gas industry.

Thanks for all you do to protect the environment,

Deb Nardone
