It is possible that two bills may appear in the Connecticut Legislature this session with the storarge of fracking wastewater from neighboring states. One bill would propose that the EPA regulate the storing of this wastewater. The other, would propose a complete ban on fracking in Connecticut. Please contact your State Representative or Senator and ask them to oppose any legislation that attempts to regulate Fracking wastewater in Connecticut. Only a complete ban on Fracking will protect the people, the land and the water of our State.
The Global Frackdown will unite concerned citizens everywhere for a day of action on October 19, 2013 to send a message to elected officials in our communities and across the globe that we want a future powered by clean, renewable energy, not dirty, polluting fossil fuels. The journey to a renewable energy future will not be fueled by shale gas. Climate scientists warn that continued extraction and burning of fossil fuels will lead to catastrophic climate change.
For decades, the Clean Water Act protected the Nation’s surface water bodies from unregulated pollution and rescued them from the crisis status they were in during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Now these vital protections are being lost. This report details the threat to our Nation’s waters by examining dozens of case studies, and highlights the urgent need for Congress to restore full Clean Water Act protections to our waters.
