Would you sign my fracking petition?

Bigger, more devastating wildfires. Bigger, more devastating hurricanes. Longer, more devastating droughts. Longer, hotter, more devastating heat waves.

We simply must act now to tackle the climate crisis. We must act on multiple fronts, all at once. And we must build popular support to take big, bold action.

Please sign my petition demanding an end to all fracking. Yes, all of it. Right now.

If someone asks you why fracking is so devastating and should be completely stopped, tell them these three things:

→ Fracking pollutes our rivers, lakes, and streams with toxic chemicals that leach into our drinking water.

→ Fracking has been linked to increased earthquake risk. Communities where there have never before been earthquakes have been literally shaken as frackers destabilize the ground beneath us.

→ And fracking absolutely exacerbates the climate crisis, leading to more carbon pollution and delaying the transition to cleaner, greener energy sources.

A community movement is crucial to raising awareness and sounding the alarm on continued fracking across America. The facts are on our side, but we've learned again and again that that's not enough — we need to be loud to make sure we're heard. We need to demand change in order to force movement.

Please sign my petition and urge Congress to end all fracking. Now.
