Hydraulic Fracturing (fracking) for natural gas in South Florida will damage water, the environment and human health.

Call your Florida Senators and Representatives today to stop this dangerous practice of fracking for natural gas.  It’s only a House bill now, but our Senators need to hear from us too.

Talking Points:

  • Over 600 chemicals, some unknown and declared proprietary, are used in fracking.
  • There should be “no secret chemicals” when it comes to protecting public health.
  • Some of the chemicals used or liberated during fracking are carcinogens, neurologic poisons with suspected links to learning deficits in children, triggers for asthma and reproductive toxicants.
  • Fracking flowback is often laden with radioactive isotopes and heavy metals that damage health.
  • Fracking with methane gas extraction is likely to degrade air, surface water and ground water, harm humans, and to negatively impact aquatic and forest ecosystems. Think of our beautiful Everglades!
  • We support a moratorium on fracking until impartial federal agencies, like EPA develop and implement enforceable rules that protect public health.
