Sign the Petition to Governor Wolf Calling for a Moratorium on Fracking to Protect Public Health
From Karen Feridun at Berks Gas Truth:
Pennsylvanians Against Fracking steering committee member Food & Water Watch has obtained documents from the Pennsylvania Department of Health showing that the agency has had a clear pattern of responding inadequately to fracking-related health complaints. In many instances, the Department of Health responded to serious health complaints by pushing the complaint onto another agency or suggesting that individuals seek out expensive tests on their own dime.
Much of this negligence occurred before Governor Wolf came into office, but the problem is now his responsibility. Governor Wolf must act immediately to halt fracking in Pennsylvania now, and put forward a plan to help individuals already adversely impacted by fracking.
We’re asking our friends everywhere to join us in calling on Gov. Wolf to protect the people of Pennsylvania. Please sign and share our petition!
