Protect Our Public Lands From Fracking

Ban Fracking on Public Lands

Representative Mark Pocan (WI-2) recently introduced a bill to ban fracking on all public lands — the strongest piece of federal legislation against fracking to date. Fracking on public lands means clear-cutting forests for well pads, air pollution, potential water contamination and thousands of trucks carrying water, toxic chemicals and waste.

Our U.S. parks and national forests are irreplaceable. Not only do they provide beautiful recreational areas and essential wildlife habitat, they also protect critical drinking water sources.

Please sign the petition below asking your Representative to support a ban on fracking on public lands. We'll deliver your signature and additional message directly to your elected official.

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am calling for a ban on fracking on all federal lands, including lands in and around our beautiful national parks and national forests. 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. Please support and co-sponsor Representative Pocan's bill to ban fracking on public lands.

Public lands belong to all of us, and they should be protected for future generations, not exploited to enrich corporate investors. We have a responsibility to continue the legacy of safeguarding America's national treasures. That's why I'm asking you to support and co-sponsor Representative Pocan's bill to ban fracking on federal lands.
