Tell the US EPA: Ban Diesel Fuel From Fracking - Sierra Club

Tell the EPA: Ban Diesel Fuel From Fracking - Sierra Club
In 2011, the natural gas industry was caught red-handed, secretly pumping over 32 million gallons of diesel fuel and diesel by-products into the ground -- and right through our drinking water. This is after the industry denied using diesel in their fracking cocktails!

The use of diesel in fracking fluids poses a great threat to our drinking water. Containing known carcinogens like benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene and xylenes, ingesting diesel can damage your central nervous system, liver and kidneys.

In response, EPA has released draft regulations for the use of diesel in fracking. However, we need EPA to take it a step further and ban the use of diesel and diesel by-products in fracking fluids.

Send a message today -- tell EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson to protect our communities and our health by banning diesel fuel and diesel fuel by-products in fracking.
