  • Pick up the phone right now! - Floridians Against Fracking

    Your computer or your telephone

    https://www.floridiansagainstfracking.org/ Make the call. [masked] Tell Gov. DeSantis he should stand by his word! Tell him to BAN FRACKING NOW! The tide has turned towards a fracking ban. After years of grassroots organizing--resulting in 91 cities and counties opposing fracking or industry-backed regulations--the 2017, 2018 and 2019 Republican sponsored ban bills had significant bipartisan support. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis passed an executive order in January calling for opposition to fracking. During the 2019 session, bipartisan support of banning fracking moved the bill closer than ever to being voted on and passed on the floor. WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW Fracking Remains a Serious Public Health Risk: Fracking has been known to contaminate water resources due to accidents, leaks, and spills, making it a serious public health risk. In fact, there are more than 600 peer reviewed studies and articles demonstrating the harms of fracking. A 2017 study that examined birth certificates for all 1.1 million infants born in Pennsylvania between[masked] found indicators of poorer infant health and significantly lower birth weights among babies born to mothers living near fracking sites. A 2017 Colorado study found higher rates of leukemia among children and young adults living in areas dense with oil and gas wells. This summer, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette documented 27 cases of Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare bone cancer that tends to strike young people, in four counties in southwestern Pennsylvania that are at the center of the Marcellus Shale fracking boom. Six cases occurred in the same school district. The evidence is clear: fracking is harmful, and we must pass a fracking ban in the state to protect our drinking water and the health of Floridians. (https://www.psr.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/compendium-6.pdf) Fracking Threatens Florida’s Tourist Economy: Floridians know the impact that oil exploration can have on our economy. After the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010, Florida’s tourism industry took a major hit; the perception alone of oil washing ashore south of the Panhandle, even though untrue, cost those counties over 50,000 jobs due to the significant decrease in tourism, according to a Harvard study. A major industrial fracking accident could cause a similar impact. Although Florida is currently home to only 87 conventional wells, between 2015 and 2018, production led to 35 spills, averaging 9 a year. Unconventional drilling techniques, like fracking, are associated with a greater frequency and severity of spills than conventional drilling. Banning Fracking Moves Florida Forward: It’s been shown that fracking for dirty fossil fuels primarily creates temporary jobs for out of state workers – not long-lasting jobs that Floridians need. In comparison, The Solutions Project estimates that 222,082 forty-year construction and 90,727 forty-year operation jobs could be created in Florida if we transitioned to renewable energy. Allowing Oil and Gas Companies to Self-regulate Fracking Operations is Inherently Dangerous: The fracking that has already been done in Florida was done improperly, and the waste was disposed of improperly in Opa Locka. A Duke University study identified close to 6,700 spills reported across four states during a 10-year period. The Physicians for Social Responsibility’s Compendium documents more than 600 peer reviewed studies and articles demonstrating the harms of fracking, which often occurred when the industry chose profits over the people’s health. It is therefore reasonable that Floridians look to the legislature, rather than industry, to ensure that Floridians’ best interests are protected. WE CAN'T AFFORD TO ALLOW FRACKING IN FLORIDA!
