Fracking is the process to release natural gas held in rock formations deep within the earth and requires blasting open fissures in the rock with injections of chemically treated water and sand, resulting in millions of gallons of poisoned wastewater per blast.
According to the Endocrine Disruption Network, 25 percent of the chemicals used in fracking can cause cancer, and fifty percent can affect the immune, cardiovascular, and nervous systems. Fracking is poisoning our land and water and may be causing earthquakes as well.
"We want to stop this dirty and dangerous form of natural-gas extraction now, before it wreaks more havoc on communities all across the country," says Executive Director Alisa Gravitz.
