Over the last few years, everyday Floridians have stood up, fought back, and defeated multiple efforts to introduce fracking to our state. Momentum has now shifted thanks to this strong and consistent grassroots energy and we now have an opportunity advance a statewide fracking ban.
Florida needs to enact a statewide ban on fracking to protect the state we love. Add your voice to the voices of Floridians saying it's time to end fracking by signing the petition below.
Petition To The Florida Legislature
We the undersigned urge you to put a stop to the unsafe oil and gas extraction process known as fracking, including a new form of drilling happening in the Everglades known as acid fracking.
There are many environmental and public health concerns linked to fracking. More than 1,000 cases of water contamination have been documented near areas of gas drilling as well as sensory, respiratory, and neurological problems. Gas that is leaked during the fracking process, along with the numerous toxic chemicals that are used, creates air pollution that increases global warming and is a danger to human health.
The last thing Florida needs, with our delicate ecology and vast underground aquifer system, is oil and gas fracking.
We urge you to support legislation to ban fracking today.
