NRDC Launches Community Fracking Defense Project

NRDC Launches Community Fracking Defense Project

I am very excited to be able to announce the official launch today of NRDC’s new Community Fracking Defense Project.

For too long, communities around the country have had little defense against the oil and gas companies that sweep into their neighborhoods and start fracking—a natural gas extraction technique linked to a range of air and water pollution issues across the country —without regard for the impact it has on the people who live there. If a city or town decides it doesn’t want fracking, or wants to restrict it, their voice should be heard and respected. The Community Fracking Defense Project is intended to start giving communities the opportunity to do so.

The new project, which is launching in five states—New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, and North Carolina—will provide assistance to towns and other local governments that want added control over the siting of and/or protections against the harms of fracking in their communities. Read more...

The NRDC has some VERY good attorneys. This could get interesting. If nothing else, it could make honest men out of the extraction companies.
