Ban Hydraulic Fracturing in New Jersey
- Voters and Active Citizens
- United States of America
Hydraulic fracturing, or hydrofracking, is the very unethical practice of pumping chemicals into the group in order to mine for natural gasses.
The main issue with hydrofracking is that the chemicals contaminate the water supply, and can potentially poison the tap water of families and individuals all over New Jersey and many other states across the country.
Hydraulic fracturing companies are not required to disclose all chemicals that they are pumping into the ground water, making the process unsafe.
This petition is aimed to take action at Hydraulic fracturing companies and the hydrofracking by banning the practice all together.
For parents, children and individuals it is far better to be safe than sorry.
The health of the residents of New Jersey surpasses the minor benefits of hydrofracking.
Signing this petition means we agree with the position of banning the practice of hydraulic fracturing.
