Fracking is an extreme method of oil and gas extraction that requires pumping millions of gallons of toxic fluid deep underground to fracture rocks and release oil and natural gas. The process can’t be done safely. The science on the impacts from fracking shows that:
- Fracking pollutes the air we breathe
- Fracking makes our drinking water toxic
- Fracking worsens climate change
- Fracking makes people sick
Fracking companies make exorbitant profits at the expense of local communities, which may be left without safe water. The solution is to ban fracking everywhere and move instead to using renewable energy.
Fracking is an unsafe process that harms our drinking water and health. The push for fracking hurts communities and worsens climate change. But we can stop fracking.
