Our U.S. parks and public lands are true national treasures. Parks like the George Washington National Forest in Virginia protect critical drinking water sources, and parks like Glacier National Park in Montana preserve breathtaking landmarks for generations to come. All parks are special to someone, but this land is under threat from fracking.The oil and gas industry is already fracking in some national forests like the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. They are also fracking on lands adjacent to National Parks like Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park in California. Oil and gas companies will stop at nothing to frack American soil, and our favorite parks are no different. We can’t let them open more parks and public lands to fracking. Fracking is inherently unsafe, and we cannot rely on regulation to protect the water we drink, the air we breathe and the health of our communities.Ask your Senators and Representative to introduce a bill to ban fracking on public lands.
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am calling for a ban on fracking on all federal lands. The best way to protect the air we breathe, the water we drink and the health of our communities is to prohibit this inherently dangerous form of fossil fuel extraction.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
