I am passing on this e-mail that I have finally got around to reading because it is time for those of us who talk about the environment to put our money where our mouth is--I have donated $15 and ask everyone who reads this to donate at least the same amount--Thank you

Doesn’t it seem like every day there is a new health or environmental concern about “fracking”?

Please donate today to support our work on fracking and other issues! And if you donate by joining our Green Giving Club, we will send you a free OEC tote bag.

Fracking Donate ButtonFracking, as you may know, is short for high-volume, horizontal hydraulic fracturing. It is a relatively new drilling technology that uses high-pressure injections of water, sand, and up to 1 million pounds of chemicals per well to break up rocks to release oil or gas from tight underground sources.

The OEC and our partners are calling for a moratorium on fracking until the U.S. EPA's fracking study is completed and Ohio can ensure that human health and the environment are protected.

(Photo: a Geauga County family has a new neighbor - a fracking well right next to their property.)

The bottom line is that until proven safe, the risks of fracking are just too great! Please donate now!

Together, our green voice can make a difference! Your continued support will allow us to continue to:
  • Negotiate adequate protections and inspections with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency;
  • Educate the public and lawmakers about fracking;
  • File legal opposition to risky drilling permits; and
  • Be your green voice in the Statehouse
Your donation ensures that your advocates - the Ohio Environmental Council’s lawyers and environmental policy experts - can continue to fight for the health and safety of the environment AND our communities.

Your support is vital to our fight against fracking! 

Sincerely,Keith Dimoff
Executive Director
