Tell Your Governor: Fracking Is Not Worth the Costs to Our Communities

Food and Water Watch

In less than 10 years, thousands of new fracking wells in Pennsylvania have caused the contamination of water wells, a slew of public health issues and serious social problems in the communities where fracking is most common.

The state of Pennsylvania’s own data show that in the areas with the most fracking, there have been huge increases in trucking accidents, public health problems and civic disturbances.

Oil and gas companies don’t want us to know about the true costs of fracking to our health, environment and communities. But the data speak for themselves. We need to turn the tables so that our elected officials listen to the science — not the the oil and gas industry’s money. Take a moment to read our new report (1) on the social costs of fracking, then share it with your Governor to show your support for a ban on this dangerous practice.
