Oppose Weak Fracking Rules
The Mining and Energy Commission is accepting public comments on the proposed fracking rules that will establish a framework for fracking in North Carolina. Like you, we know that fracking is wrong for North Carolina and we won’t stop fighting it. However, our state legislature has voted to let drilling begin as soon as next summer. No rules can make fracking a good choice for our state, but the MEC’s proposed rules create major, unnecessary risks to human health and the environment.
Time to act on climate change
U.S. Congress may be voting on a bipartisan bill (S761) soon that promotes energy efficiency and would help to curb carbon pollution in America. As evidence continues to mount that climate change is real (i.e. heat waves, droughts, and wildfires across the U.S.) it’s time that Congress acts on it. S761 would spur innovation in energy efficiency technologies for residential, commercial and industrial sectors. It could even create over 75,000 new jobs by 2020 and save consumers $4 billion in energy savings.
