The Fight for Life Continues......



Dear Reader--I am passing on this e-mail, because Yes, We must Support the Sierra Club and Yes, We must end Fracking, so that Fracking does not destroy our environment thus become our own killer---Fracking is Not the Solution To our Energy Needs--It is a means to end life on planet; Earth. Therefore>>>>
Tell President Obama to put the brakes on fracked gas exports.

Right now, communities across the country are already fighting the fracking industry for clean air and clean water. And the stakes have gotten even higher with the potential for more fracking so the natural gas industry can export liquefied natural gas (LNG) to other countries.

The natural gas industry is working every angle -- drilling in local communities with abandon while pressuring federal, state, and local policy makers to change laws so they can drill even more. This has got to stop. President Obama needs to make sure there is a time out on LNG exports.

Send your letter today! Tell President Obama to put the brakes on exporting fracked gas.

President Obama is only hearing one side of the story from the Department of Energy, and it favors the natural gas industry. DOE's recent study on the economics of fracked gas exports completely ignores the public health, environmental, and climate costs of an export rush. The study also shows that the middle class loses if gas is exported -- our wages fall and our utility bills rise, while the gas companies get rich.

Let's remind President Obama of all the other costs: the cost of buying drinking water because your well is polluted with fracking chemicals, lost work days because your child is sick due to respiratory problems, and increasing utility bills to heat our homes while communities are left to pay the price for fracking.

Tell President Obama to call a time out on LNG exports and protect our communities from the dangers of fracking.

Thanks for all that you do to protect the environment,
