Don’t Open Over 1.6 Million Acres of Land to Fracking

Target: Brian Steed, Deputy Director, Policy and Programs, Bureau of Land Management

Goal: Protect the 1.6 million acres of natural land that are proposed real estate for fracking and drilling companies.

Over 1.6 million acres of natural land in California are at risk of destruction after the Trump Administration moved to open them to dangerous fracking and natural gas drilling. The lands which the government wants to lease to fracking companies are public lands near Fresno and beyond.

Fracking has continuously been proven dangerous by scientists around the world. The practice leads to polluted water and deforestation. Humans and animals have fallen ill. Even earthquakes have taken place around the sites of fracking wells.

Public land should not be auctioned off to the highest corporate bidder. Public lands should be protected and preserved for generations to come. Sign the petition to demand the federal government walk back its plans to open priceless California wild lands to fracking.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Steed,

Over 1.6 million acres of public wild lands are in danger of being destroyed in California. Fracking and gas wells may soon dot the landscape as drinking water is polluted and animals lose their habitats.

Fracking has already destroyed too much of the American landscape. Our nation’s land should not be on sale for the highest bidder. I demand you walk back your plans to destroy California’s landscape for fracking.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
