Say no to fracking | Letter

The process of fracking gas uses highly dangerous chemicals, many of which cause neurological harm or are known carcinogens. Despite this, the fracking injection process is excluded from the regulations of the Safe Drinking Water Act. About 40,000 gallons of chemicals are used per fracking and each well can be fracked 18 times.

Babies and children have no agency and rely on the adults in our society to protect them from harm.

Gov. Inslee can stop two fracked gas mega-projects from operating in Washington state, but has yet to take a stance on fracked gas. Please join me in encouraging Gov. Inslee to oppose any project that expands the use of fracked gas.
