President Obama: reopen the investigations on fracking

We need your help to protect communities living with fracking! Urge President Obama and Gina McCarthy to reopen the fracking investigations. 

Over the past year, the Obama administration has advocated an "all of the above" energy strategy, including pushing for natural gas extraction from fracking. Despite clear evidence of water and air pollution that harms the families with extraction in their backyards, and a promise from the President himself not to drill unless it is done safely, the Obama administration continues to turn a blind eye to the devastation caused by oil and gas extraction.

When early results of investigations in Dimock, Pennsylvania, Parker County, Texas and Pavillion, Wyoming showed that the EPA had evidence linking gas drilling and fracking operations to groundwater contamination, the Obama administration chose to "see no evil" and abandon the investigations. Leaving impacted communities to fend for themselves. 

President Obama and EPA administrator Gina McCarthy must stand with those communities who have been harmed by extraction, and remember that you represent the American people, not the oil and gas industry.

TAKE ACTION: Tell President Obama and Administrator McCarthy to uphold their responsibility to us, our health, and our drinking water and reopen the investigations into the dangers of fracking.
