|Keep Fossil Fuels in the Ground to Stop Environmental Disasters|
Across the United States, fossil fuel disasters are destroying the environment and devastating communities. From refinery fires and coal ash spills to pipeline leaks and dangerous pollution, fossil fuels are a hazard to us all.
Fossil fuels contribute to some of the worst environmental disasters and remain a hazard to communities and our health. In San Bruno, California, a pipeline explosion resulted in a devastating fire and 8 deaths. A coal chemical spill in Charleston, West Virginia contaminated the drinking water of hundreds of thousands of people. 3 million gallons of drilling waste spilled from an oil pipeline in Williston, North Dakota. The list of fossil fuel disasters goes on and on.
