Together, our voices can help stop the bomb trains, and keep extreme oil like the tar sands and Bakken crude in the ground where it belongs. But I need your help:If you’re willing to host a local event […]


You Can’t Trust the EPA on fracking

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) finally released their study on how fracking impacts drinking water. You’ll doubtless see headlines repeating the study’s main finding that fracking poses no “widespread” risk to drinking water.  But even that summary is a lie, or at least a very misleading falsehood, and we’ll tell you why: The first, and most important reason not to trust this study on fracking’s […]
