Sign this petition to tell the Obama administration to enact an immediate national moratorium on high-volume, horizontal hydraulic fracturing (HVHF) while the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and independent scientific studies are completed on the impacts of fracking to the environment, climate and human health.
Signing this petition automatically sends an email calling for a moratorium on fracking to the U.S. EPA, Department of Energy and Bureau of Land Management.
This petition unites the voices of Americans who demand a moratorium on fracking until the risks to water and air quality, climate and human health can be be thoroughly evaluated, successfully mitigated or eliminated, or until it is determined that HVHF technology cannot be performed without unacceptable risk and is banned.
