Hurry Please - Sign the Petition to Stop Fracking in National Forests!

Stop Fracking in National Forests

By William Morris (Contact)

To be delivered to: The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate and President Barack Obama

We urge you to do everything in your power to stop oil and natural gas drilling in our National Forests.
A federal appeals court ruled this week that oil and gas companies can begin drilling in the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. The ruling says that the government only controls the surface rights in the national forest, not the mineral rights under the surface.

This could open up drilling in ALL National Forests.

This means they start drilling immediately unless we act now.

There are two ways we can stop this:

1) The Obama Justice Department must appeal this ruling and ask for an injunction to halt drilling; and
2) Congress must pass legislation to stop drilling in all National Forests.

 It only takes a second for Oil & Gas to destroy our 'Protected NAtional Forests' and it only takes a second to sign the petition against their destruction.


Thank you!


  1. Please President Obama. Do not let them come in and ruin our water, and land, and make what little we have here left in Appalachia, be destroyed. Didn't we learn our lessons from strip mining? Mountaintop removal? Please say no to this.

  2. I oppose "fracking" because I have serious concerns for the environmental impact of this process of removing natural gas from the earth beneath our rivers, streams, protected national forests & parks, & our villages, towns & cities. The short-term "benefits" do not justify the long-term hazards to the earth & all life forms which inhabit the earth.
