To: Governor John Hickenlooper... Kids Against Fracking asks you to --

Ban Fracking in Colorado on all public lands and near schools until the practice is proven safe!

Ban Fracking in Colorado on all public lands and near schools until the practice is proven safe!

Place a moratorium on fracking in Colorado on all public lands and near schools until a study has been done that confirms that our communities will be protected from exposure to harmful toxins, chemical bi-products, pollutants and contamination of water supplies.

Why is this important?

We want Governor Hickenlooper and the Colorado State Legislature to tell us how the industry of fracking will make Colorado a better place to live, taking into account its impacts on the economy, the natural world, wilderness, tourism, living standards, water supply, our health and general quality of life.

We want to know what measures the government is taking to protect our futures and how this industry is helping us move toward sustainable energy resources.

We believe that the practice of fracking is too risky and it doesn't justify the few benefits.

We have water shortages here in Colorado. We can't afford to use precious water in fracking and we can't afford to contaminate the water we have.

We have alternative resources here in Colorado. We don't have to destroy our health and our environment to produce energy.

The question is not whether natural gas is better than coal, but whether it is better than wind and sun!

How it will be delivered

We will personally deliver your petitions to representatives at the State Capitol!

Reasons for signing

  • I signed because I have concerns about the health risk of fracking near my sons school
  • This is a real danger of turning our living areas into old mining towns where no one is willing to live. Possibly unable to sell our homes due to unhealthy air and water. Also, this problem will prevent others from moving into Colorado.
  • I am very concerned when an operation which can be dangerous for the health and welfare of human beings does not have to abide by laws established to do just that.
