SignOn.org Petition to keep NC frack-free

Hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," has contaminated drinking water supplies and waterways, increased air pollution, and marred landscapes in the states where it is prevalent. Now, out-of-state oil and gas companies want to bring this risky drilling practice to North Carolina, which could threaten Jordan Lake, the Eno River, the Deep River-- and the drinking water supplies for hundreds of thousands.

In a controversial vote, the North Carolina General Assembly has lifted some restrictions on fracking, but a moratorium on drilling remains. Sign our petition to make sure we protect our water, air, and quality of life from the form of gas drilling that has been linked to more than 1,000 cases of water contamination around the country.

That's why I signed a petition to Pat McCrory, Governor Elect, The North Carolina State House, and The North Carolina State Senate.

Will you sign this petition? Click here:

3. Nope. NC has majorly screwed itself. Art Pope ...

...is a known criminal, McCrory is too, and Republicans dominate all for 1st time in 100 years.

Voter ID is on the way, fracking duJour and drilling off the coast. I wonder what they'll do to the schools and OUR taxes (I know corprat taxes will go down and particularly Duke Energy's - doubt they pay any anyway).

How people here could be so dumb is beyond me.
