The Obama administration’s Bureau of Land Management has proposed opening 600 million acres of Federal and Native American land for fracking. It’s no surprise the proposed rule changes won’t hold gas and oil companies accountable for the damage they cause to public health and the environment, since the new rules were written by ExxonMobil. The public is encouraged to submit comments on the revised proposed rule before August 23, 2013.
Like other presidents before him President Obama has said it is the job of the public to push him in the direction it feels is most constructive for the public good. Please take the time and effort to raise your voice to push Obama away from the destructive process of extracting natural gas by unconventional drilling also called hydraulic fracturing or “fracking”. Please help push him towards an energy future that is not dependent on dirty fossil fuels.
