LET'S WORK TOGETHER TO STOP FRACKING IN KENTUCKY
July, 2015 - Governor Beshear the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet are collecting public input to help shape rules and regulations for oil and gas development in Kentucky, including fracking.
The list of chemicals used to frack should, in and of itself, demonstrate the serious dangers associated with this extraction process. Fracking has been found to cause or contribute significantly to: water contamination; air pollution; earthquakes; infrastructure damage; devaluation of land values; increased illness in the areas of dermatology, neurology, oncology, and urology, among other categories.
Given these outcomes, several states and dozens, if not hundreds of cities, counties and municipalities have issued resolutions opposing, moratoriums against or outright bans on fracking.
