National Anti-Fracking Group Launched... [View all]

Source: Fort Worth Star Telegram

A new group called Americans Against Fracking, which claims more than 100 members including environmental, civic and religious groups, said it seeks a national ban on hydraulic fracturing "and drilling associated with fracking."

The group in a news release says that efforts to regulate the industry have been unsuccessful and only an outright ban will suffice, along with restrictions on related oil and gas production activities.

"Americans Against Fracking supports federal, state and local efforts to ban fracking and to stop practices that facilitate fracking like natural gas exports, frac(ture) sand mining and pipeline construction." It calls for a move away from fossil fuels toward renewables. The group's website is here.
