We Took Action to Protect the Delaware River Basin and They Listened!
Now Take the Next Step to Ban Fracking Your Community!

May 12, 2011

Dear Michael,

With Your Help We're Building a Grassroots Movement to Ban Fracking in Your Community and Across the Country

Craig Sautner from Dimock, PA shows contaminated water from his tap soon after fracking began in his area.

Congratulations! Because more than 3,000 of our amazing supporters like you took action, the Delaware River Basin Commission voted unanimously to postpone a vote on ExxonMobil's permit request to take up to 250,000 gallons of water a day from a tributary to the Delaware River. This gives us more time to prevent drilling in the Delaware River Basin and across the country. 
Can you help build support for a fracking ban in your community by signing up to get a fracking activist toolkit?

It becomes clearer every day that hydraulic fracturing is not the solution to our energy problems. From New York to Pennsylvania to Arkansas, citizens and elected officials are taking a stand against fracking. Even Chesapeake Energy, the second-largest natural gas producer in the country, has decided to suspend fracking in the state of Pennsylvania until they can figure out what caused a recent blowout. We're building momentum against fracking, but we need your help. 

Can you help collect signatures in your community to support a ban on fracking? 

Hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," injects millions of gallons of fracking fluids — a mixture of nearly 600 chemicals, water and sand — into a well to create pressure that cracks open rocks underground, releasing natural gas. There are many problems with the toxic wastewater that results, and few solutions to the water contamination that can happen as a result of fracking. Many communities and states have already passed resolutions against fracking. We need to pass more resolutions at the local level to move this issue to the national level. Can you help build the movement against fracking?
