Ban Fracking in the Dallas / Fort Worth Area Now

Ban Fracking in the Dallas / Fort Worth Area Now

Petition Text

Tell Mayor, Mike Rawlings and City Manager, A.C. Gonzalez, it is time to help ban or reduce fracking in City of Dallas and surrounding area due to the on-going recent earthquakes and before it leads to a serious disaster.

Why is this important?

Governor Cuomo of New York has declared a statewide ban on fracking. Local citizen-led initiatives have helped ban fracking in Mendocino and San Benito counties in California; Athens, Ohio; Mora, New Mexico; and Denton, Texas. Communities across the United States and world are saying NO to this environmentally disastrous method of extracting fossil fuels from the land.

We need Mayor, Mike Rawlings and City Manager, A.C. Gonzalez to take necessary action to help ban fracking in city of Dallas and surrounding area. The new recent widely felt earthquakes in our area should be an immediate concern before it leads to a serious disaster. Our city structures and buildings have never been prepared to deal with earthquake because these magnitudes and frequency of earthquakes has never been experienced in this area until this practice has started.
