Fracking Facts

Posted on Updated on

optimistA bill which would ban all types of fracking in Florida has been backed by a bipartisan group of lawmakers in Tallahassee.  “This bill is concise and straightforward: It bans fracking of all types in Florida,” said Sen. Dana Young, a Tampa Republican who filed the proposal (SB 442) on Tuesday.

The science on fracking is clear, it is not safe in Florida’s fragile ecosystem of limestone caverns which protect and hold our precious drinking water. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/opinion/os-ed-florida-fracking-ban-20161213-story.html  Sierra Club also has a concise paper on some of the dangers and risks of fracking.

However, opinions to the contrary are often put forth publicly which contradict scientific research and historical evidence.  An opinion piece in the “Orlando Sentinel” today downplays the dangers of fracking in the state of Florida.  Don’t believe it.  Support SB 442.
