ODNR and the oil and gas industry have been trying to marginalize the public concerns of fracking in Ohio for over a decade. The agency has defied science and medical facts about the harms of fracking, and now the commission appears to be dismissive of those same truths. It is utter hypocrisy in saying you care about our planet while agreeing to destroy it.
We are at the tipping point in relation to climate disruption and still our state officials play with climate as if they are at a tea party. The Oil and Gas Land Management Commission is in violation of the public trust and rule of law ignoring the science of climate change. We must continue to resist the sellout of our public lands and stand for the future of our children, grandchildren and species that depend on them. This matters!
The idea that we should frack our most treasured spaces in Ohio to provide tax cuts for the rich is as appalling as it is ludicrous. Polluting and degrading our parks won’t produce a steady source of income. Preserving our parks for Ohioans to enjoy now and in future generations will. Ohio’s untouched natural spaces are our most important asset, and we must protect them.
