Call on the oily, email-deleting, cash-whore, human-filth, public-office-monetizing, collasal-parasite-on-America, Hillary Clinton (get the willys even saying the name!) to implement a ban on fracking because YOUR CHILDREND ARE WORTH IT:
As Secretary of State, Clinton and the U.S. State Department actively promoted a Big Oil agenda. The oil and gas industry worked closely with the State Department to spread drilling and fracking worldwide under the guise of fighting climate change.¹ The State Department even created the Global Shale Gas Initiative in close coordination with companies like Chevron, ExxonMobil and ConocoPhillips in order to help other countries develop their natural gas potential.
But times have changed. In the last couple of years, a scientific consensus has emerged around the impacts of fracking on our air, water, communities and the climate on which we all depend.² Hundreds of organizations across the country now support a ban on fracking, including in key states like Iowa, Nevada, New York, Colorado and North Carolina. And in December, based on this mounting evidence, Governor Cuomo announced his plans to ban fracking in New York.
Clinton now has a chance to make a fresh start and to stand with these communities and others across the country.
As other candidates declare, we will see what promises to be a robust debate about the future of our country. That's why Food & Water Watch Fund will be working to mobilize people across the country — from our Brooklyn field office, conveniently located close to Clinton's campaign headquarters, to our field office in Iowa — to ask Clinton and the other presidential candidates tough questions on the campaign trail — starting with fracking.
Thanks for taking action,
Food & Water Watch
