Subject: President Obama: Ban Fracking on Public Lands
I signed a petition to Sally Jewell, Secretary of the Interior and President Barack Obama which says:
"I am calling for a ban on fracking on all federal lands.
This land is our land and should be managed for the good of the people, not corporate profits for the oil and gas industry.
The Bureau of Land Management's proposed rules for regulating hydraulic fracturing on Federal and Indian lands are not only weak, but they do not take into account all of the harmful processes required to frack for oil and gas.
The best way to protect our air, water, wildlife, climate and public health is simply to prohibit this inherently dangerous form of fossil fuel extraction on public lands."
