Ban Fracking in Montgomery County, Maryland Now

Ban Fracking in Montgomery County, Maryland Now

Petition Text

Tell the County Council that it is time to ban fracking in Montgomery County, Maryland.

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.

It is time for The County Council to take action and ban fracking in Montgomery County now.

Montgomery County, MD, United States
