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.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
