It is appallingly apathetic that this petition was started over 30 days ago and only 43 people have signed on! Isn't anyone reposting this? Come on! Just what heinous tragedy has to occur before people will start worrying more about the devastating ecological threats being jammed down our throats than being "politically correct" with the people in our lives!

I don't understand as well. People don't seem to feel very concerned....

Donna.....Too many people are not familiar with fracking, which is probably the reason for the low amount of signatures. I live in PA, where they allowed it without putting strict regulations in place first--and now the problems are beginning to surface. It all comes down to $$....Yes, people need work and money--but at what cost?

I understand what is happening, people are waking up and realizing the scam the EPA and the liberals are running to get their name in the headlines and making things up. If Obama and the democrat liberals would stop interfering with any use of America's natural resources that are plentiful then fracking would be a total last resort and would probably never happen because if we used the readily available oil in the country, that would save the economy long enough to get a real alternative to...

I understand what is happening, people are waking up and realizing the scam the EPA and the liberals are running to get their name in the headlines and making things up. If Obama and the democrat liberals would stop interfering with any use of America's natural resources that are plentiful then fracking would be a total last resort and would probably never happen because if we used the readily available oil in the country, that would save the economy long enough to get a real alternative to fossil fuels instead of wasting our entire future and trillions of dollars to reward the democrat donor companies with their hopeless strategy which are going bankrupt daily at we and our ancestors expense for the next 2 or 3 generations. As far as the pollution from fracking, if the EPA can't find enough to warrant shutting every thing down then they will pump it into the area all the while they are experimenting on human guinea pigs(of course the media neglected to report on them), to prove the particles and gases in the atmosphere are making people sick.

I and many others have been protesting about this for months...months. There have been hearings and all sorts of petitions about this that many have signed. Do you support any environmental groups? Riverkeeper? Clearwater? Greenpeace? These groups have sent out petitions. I have FBooked the governor a number of times about this and my state senators. Many are protesting this. Glad you finally found out.

I've tried to sign and the 'Sign the Petition' button is disabled. Neither is it working for a colleague who I posted it too. Perhaps that's the reason so few signatures.

This Fracking GREED is indefensible. When all the drinkable water on earth is gone, all life is gone with it. Then no amount of $$ will be able to save ourselves, because it will be too late. What we do to the planet, we ultimately do to ourselves. Water will always be more precious than OIL and GAS so let's stop the insanity and put PEOPLE and the planet before GREED, the deadliest sin of all.

All I see here are a bunch of pansie assed tree huggers whinning. Yet. I bet that each and everyone of you are sitting in your oil gas electric heated homes, bathing in hit bubbly bath tub driving your electric cars where the battery causes more contamination to the planet than does oil or coal. Get off your high fluting asses move into some cave and start wearing buck skin for clothing. Everthing we use in energy produced

It's ALL about ENERGY and the/our/your hedonist WASTE!
At the end of the day, it's our own DUMB fault!
Humanity's fate is ALL about the overconsumption of Energy. Yet, AMERICA Continues to WASTE over 70% of the Energy it Consumes.
Our hedonist energy waste is culturally pervasive, inexcusable, and suicidal.
(1) 100's of millions of lights unnecessarily burn energy every day and night.
(2) We over heat, over cool, and over light our municipalities, businesses, offices, homes, churches,...

Humanity's fate is ALL about the overconsumption of Energy. Yet, AMERICA Continues to WASTE over 70% of the Energy it Consumes.
Our hedonist energy waste is culturally pervasive, inexcusable, and suicidal.
(1) 100's of millions of lights unnecessarily burn energy every day and night.
(2) We over heat, over cool, and over light our municipalities, businesses, offices, homes, churches, SCHOOLS, etc….
(3) Over packaging is the norm, and recycling is inadequate. Our landfills are busier than ever. Plastics (all of which are derived from petroleum) are the cause of most cancers.
(4) Most Americans do not minimize their driving; road congestion is horrendous.
(5) America's incessant obsession with driving and road construction is the ultimate contradiction to sustainable living.
The only way to eliminate waste and over demand for energy is by using the economic impact of taxing energy. Crude oil must be taxed at $160 per barrel(42 gal) and this 'energy consumption tax' be offset by making Federal Income Tax begin at $60k. Only with a substantial and tangible dollar consequence/reward will there be the incentive to conserve energy. Until the price of gas is $6 to $7 per gallon, Americans will not significantly reduce their over consumption and energy waste.
Global warming continues to increases with our persistent waste and overuse of fossil fuels. Human extinction will be the reward for our failure to rapidly and broadly implement renewable energy supplies. The incentives necessary to implement sustainable and renewable energy supplies can ONLY occur when we employ the economics of TAXING ENERGY.
Look around you; the energy waste is EVERYWHERE!
Use your influence and resources to promote Energy Conservation.
Americans need to be ever reminded/told to STOP the/our/your Energy WASTE!

I will stop driving when you pry my cold dead hands off the wheel of my big beautiful SUV and I will heat/cool my house for my own comfort as I am the one who is paying the electric bill on it. I will keep on as many lights as I deem necessary.
