"Our successes have shown the industry we are an opponent to fear, as communities rise up to stop them. To put it bluntly, frackers hate us because they know we can win."

Long-term data shows fracking damages are worse than predicted: "We were concerned at the initial signs many years ago that fracking was unsafe. And over time, the science has shown that we were right:

FACT: Fracking is sucking up precious water resources.
FACT: Fracking causes earthquakes.
FACT: There is growing concern about a surge in rare childhood cancers in fracking-heavy regions.
FACT: Chemicals like benzene and methanol are often present in the injection fluids.
FACT: Despite the industry spin calling fracked gas a clean ‘bridge fuel,’ the methane leaking from every phase of the fracking process is driving us towards climate catastrophe."

Alliances in this fight: "We have stood with our allies in New York and across the nation to oppose fracking, and with people power on our side we’ve continued to stop the fracking industry’s progress.

The United Nations’ special panel on climate change has said that we must massively curb carbon emissions within ten years, or face more intense catastrophes. It is quite literally a race to either ban fracking everywhere, or for the frackers to sink their teeth deeper into the United States with new pipelines, wells and power plants."




Good news, right? But banning is not enough. LNG does not make sense anywhere alternative is available. In many cases, regions can produce their own cheaper and more efficiently if they manage their , and correctly.

Three Canadian companies who market green buzzwords like "sustainability" and "environmental solutions" on their websites and in promotional videos were put to the test ... by investigative journalists:

"Only 1 company recycled the plastic. The two trackers in Merlin Plastics' bales ended up at a recycling processing plant in Delta, B.C., suggesting it was recycled.

Both of the GFL trackers went straight to a waste-to-energy facility, a landfill alternative that creates power by incinerating garbage. The harmful acid gases emitted through the burning process become trapped in the incinerator and are then treated with chemical "scrubbers" that convert them into neutral salts."
