up to date now, thank you Lenicka
Thank you so much Lenicka for posting these VERY important petitions about this awful business of fracking. It is extremely toxic to both man and beast. I signed the one that I had not and commented:
"Please stop this insanity!! PLEASE! What good will all the natural gas be to humans that are no longer here on the planet because the environs has been decimated and they have been poisoned by the very water they drink? What cost progress?? As Churchill said, "“However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.” The strategy of fracking is only beautiful on paper to the companies making all the dollars by raping and pillaging the lands, people, animals. Please stop this, Do The Right Thing!!!! Thank You."
Also, please everybody, take note......on the first petition above there is a link within the petition for registering at FRACTUAL and that is a great site to register with to stay informed. They also offer a DVD about Fracking for a minimal cost for S&H. The Documentary they suggest also, GASLAND, is also very eye opening and worth the watch too.
Signed both! Thanks so much. Fracking should have been banned long ago. It's too destructive and dangerous.
TY Lenicka signed both.
Frackin' Good Films
Wyoming Resilient Habitat organizers helped get more than 350 people out to the Don't Frack the Hoback Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Jackson, Wyoming, last week.
The festival raised awareness about a proposed natural gas field in the middle of the Bridger-Teton National Forest (in the upper Hoback Basin just 35 miles from Grand Teton National Park).
"It was a very inspiring evening," said Zach Waterman, Resilient Habitats organizer in the Western US. "In addition to a great lineup of conservation oriented films, we had a powerful lineup of community leaders speak out against this irresponsible proposal."
Signed, thank you.
Tell the White House to Say No to LNG Exports
As the natural gas industry booms, the industry is looking to the White House to help them profit from shale gas even if it means more fracking. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exports are the new money maker for an industry that has always put profits before the health of our communities.
Exporting LNG means more fracking, polluted drinking water and air, pipelines cutting across lands to coastal export facilities, and higher natural gas bills for us. As if that weren't enough, LNG has a carbon footprint that can be as dirty as coal. It is no surprise that companies interested in investing in natural gas exports do not want to disclose the real impacts. In fact, these companies are lobbying against any federal study of the environmental damage they would cause.
We need to tell the White House's Council on Environmental Quality Chair Nancy Sutley that exporting dirty LNG is dangerous to our public health, environmentally destructive, and that it is time to come clean and disclose these impacts.
already signed these...and many others, thanks
All signed and shared.
Thank You All!
Signed too. Thanks RC.
TU all...have signed all these an many others against this friggin fracking all over the world...it's insanity!
TY RC signed that one too.
The deadline of the petition is 26 may because Encana has gone through all of the proper channels and has the green light to start fracking on May 26th.
Thank You Lenicka, up to date on these too.
A rush to drill is sweeping the United States. Across the country, the oil and gas industry is rushing into new areas as quickly and cheaply as possible. And they’re using risky technologies like hydraulic fracturing (“fracking&rdquo long before we fully understand the full extent of the negative impacts on the health of local people, communities, water, air, the climate, and other critical resources. Landowners and communities are struggling to cope: existing laws are outdated and loophole-riddled, and enforcement is universally inadequate and underfunded. The result: as industry rakes in record profits from fracking-enabled drilling, it passes on drilling’s heaviest costs to landowners, local communities and future generations. Now is the time for us all to unite and demand that decisionmakers inside the Beltway hear our voices and take action to change the way the oil and gas industry operates in this country. On July 28th, 2012, we invite community members and organizations everywhere to join us in Washington, D.C. for a rally at the Capitol to demand no more drilling that harms public health, water, and air.

I'm proud to be working with the residents of New York who are entrenched in what the New York Times is calling "a movement that has become one of the most powerful environmental and citizens campaigns in state history."
The people of New York are in the fight of their lives to protect their water, their health and their communities from the dangers of fracking, but they can't do it alone.
Will you join them in the fight?
Because a large part of New York sits on top of a supply of natural gas, the fossil fuel industry is hell-bent on fracking in the state. Governor Cuomo could lift the current moratorium and allow fracking any day now. But New Yorkers have seen the destruction that their neighbors in Pennsylvania are facing and they've seen that regulations don't work. The only way to prevent a toxic legacy is to push nationally to Ban Fracking Now.
We can't live without clean, safe water, and this is powerful motivation for the people in New York who are on the front lines of the fight against fracking. We're helping lead this fight to protect our drinking water along with a statewide coalition called New Yorkers Against Fracking, which comprises about 110 groups and organizations who are pushing to Ban Fracking Now. But even if we are successful in New York, there are many other states that are also threatened by fracking, which is why we need a federal ban.
Will you join the good people of New York and urge your federal legislators to Ban Fracking Now?
Every day there is more and more evidence of the dangers of fracking. And the movement is growing around the world, too. France, Germany and Bulgaria have come out against fracking. Vermont recently became the first U.S. state to ban the dirty practice. Billionaire oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens has even announced that he has gotten out of natural gas stocks due to cheap prices. Essentially, there is no profit in gas fracking, and, in his words, "natural gas has been a disaster."
No place is safe from fracking. We need a national ban today.
Email your legislators asking them to introduce legislation for a national ban on fracking:
Thanks for taking action,
Education & Outreach Organizer
Food & Water Watch
P.S. This is part of a series of stories from communities that we're working with around the country who are standing up and fighting back against the multi-million dollar fracking industry. If you missed last week's story about Ohio's earthquakes, you can check it out here.
Residents of the Riverdale Mobile Homes Park in rural Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, are being evicted and offered little compensation to make way for a fracking operation.
The residents are poor and include children and the elderly and alternative accommodation locally is hard to come by, as a wave of workers imported for the fracking has driven up rents.
Oh I missed this topic Lenicka ! Sorry !
Will sign all petitions right now!!!!!!!
Signed. Thanks RC
All signed, except NC closed.
TY got it

All active petitions signed!
Say No to Dangerous Fracking | Tell President Obama to Keep His Promise Fracking is a process that injects harmful chemicals at high pressure to open and widen the earth's surface for the removal of natural resources. In his State of the Union address, President Obama promised that drilling and fracking for natural gas would by no means be allowed to put "the health and safety of our citizens at risk." However, oil and gas companies are working very hard to ensure this promise is not kept.
We cannot allow corporations to put profit ahead of the environment and our health. Write to Obama today and ask him to reinforce his promise with action!

Push Back Against Fracking
Fracking is a controversial energy extraction method that involves drilling and pumping dangerous chemicals into the ground. Not only is this process extremely dangerous for the environment, it poses a serious health risk to the American public.
Earlier this year, President Obama promised fracking would occur "without putting the health and safety of our citizens at risk." One safety measure is to require pre-fracking chemical disclosure--a critical resource that would give nearby communities time to test and monitor water supplies for any fracking-related pollution. However, oil and gas companies are lobbying hard to forego these measures and continue to exploit the environment for a quick profit.
Join together and remind President Obama to keep his word regarding fracking and put the health of this country's citizens and environment before sneaky corporations!
