Together, we'll keep fracking out of North Carolina 

Keep N.C. Frack-Free

NCE_Fracking_lake_Landing.fw.png"Fracking,” shorthand for hydraulic fracturing, is the process by which water, sand and toxic chemicals are injected into wells to fracture the surrounding rock and extract shale gas. The process has contaminated water supplies and increased air pollution around the country.

Gov. McCrory, Speaker Thom Tillis, and other  leaders have passed a law to allow fracking here as soon as May 2015. That's why we're leading the charge to gather as many petitions into the governor to let him know that North Carolinians across the state stand strong against fracking. Already, 50,000 have taken action. Will you send your message now?

Subject: Reinstate the ban on fracking
Drilling for shale gas and hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, have contaminated drinking water sources and wells, and have caused air pollution and fractured communities in states where they are occurring. A variety of health impacts to people and animals have been reported near shale gas development.

In North Carolina, the drinking water sources for millions, including hundreds of thousands of well users, could be at risk.

We, the undersigned, urge you to reinstate the permanent ban on fracking and horizontal drilling for shale gas in North Carolina and to continue the ban on underground toxic waste injection.
