Tell Governor Hickenlooper to Ban Fracking Now!

Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) can contaminate our drinking water, lower our property values and harm our communities.

As your constituent, I urge you to ban fracking in order to truly protect Colorado and Coloradans.

Why is this important?

There are over 45,000 hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, wells in Colorado -- many of which are near our homes, schools and parks. Fracking is a dangerous oil and natural gas extraction process that can contaminate our drinking water, lower our property values and harm our communities.

Governor Hickenlooper needs to stand up for Coloradans and protect our state from fracking.

Reasons for signing

  • The science is speaking and so are the people. Recent developments have shown the dangerous impacts of this toxic activity. Stand behind the voices of the citizens that clearly oppose fracking. Allow the beautiful and pristine Colorado landscape to be undisturbed. New York took a stand. I urge you to do the same.
  • just watched "frack us" it is a must see about the dangers of fracking. yes! i believe the protesters. end fracking now. promote a healthier environment before the only thing we have are dvds to see the beauty in nature.
  • I have well-water and a breast cancer survivor and a parent. We live in a populated area (Douglas County) that shares too many resources.
