Tell President Obama -- Natural gas is dirty and dangerous

We are at the fork in the road -- will we continue our dependence on dirty, climate-changing fossil fuels or move toward a clean energy future?

A Presidential Climate Action Plan that doubles down on clean energy cannot also continue our reliance on natural gas. Proposing we frack more puts our communities at risk and is a recipe for climate disaster.

Drilling for natural gas means more climate pollution and more potential pipeline explosions. Methane emissions from fracking -- leaking from wells throughout the drilling process -- are 72 to 105 times more potent than carbon dioxide. And we know the climate footprint of a fracked well is much larger than the well itself. The water, sand, and steel used to build and drill these wells are trucked in, redefining rush hour traffic in many parts of the country.

Natural Gas is dirty and dangerous

Dear President Obama,

While I applaud your commitment to tackling climate change, I am concerned you are underestimating the climate-changing power of natural gas.

Sincerely,
