Sierra Club Releases Drill Act Mythbuster Fact Sheet
The Mad Rush to Drill Act Mythbuster Factsheet from Pa Sierra Club is designed to not only discredit industry talking points, but also cite specific pieces of the law that promote dangerous fracking practices that threaten human health and the environment.
â€œAs the industry looks to begin fracking in other states it is important for everyone to know what is happening in Pennsylvania,â€ said Deb Nardone, Director of Sierra Clubâ€™s Natural Gas Reform Campaign. â€œThis new law shows how deep industry claws are dug into Pennsylvania. The PA mythbuster resource provides the facts that every state with potential for fracking should read before they let this dangerous industry take control.â€
â€œPennsylvanians deserve to know the truth about what the future of the state will look like with this fracking law in place,â€ said Jeff Schmidt, Director of Sierra Clubâ€™s Pennsylvania Chapter. â€œThe gas industry and the lawâ€™s supporters like to make claims that it promotes safe and responsible drilling but the text of the law shows the very opposite. This resource gives the public the facts they need to fight back against this terrible law and protect the health of our communities and environment from fracking.â€
