Thousands of North Carolinians showed up and spoke up during public hearings on fracking this summer. But we need you to speak up too!
The legislature promised that North Carolina would have the strongest fracking rules in the country; however, the proposed rules are far from acceptable. The MEC’s proposed rules would allow for fracking permits to be issued without a clear solution for safely disposing of wastewater from fracking operations.
The only way the MEC will add protections and standards for toxic wastewater is if enough people send in comments urging them to address this missing part of the rules.
This is why we need YOU to stand up for strong protections from fracking for North Carolina – click here to submit your comment to the MEC today!
Together, we’ll make sure the MEC realizes that North Carolinians expect rules that are the strongest in the country.
Thanks for all that you do,
Associate Organizer for the NC Sierra Club
