Fracking is deadly.

Dear President Obama,

I am outraged that you are unaware that everytime fracking occurs, poisonous methane emissions leak into our
atmosphere and ground water. You cannot get natural gas without getting poisonous methane emissions that harm
our environment, and harm people from unsafe drinking water in certain States.
I am appalled that EPA, Sally Jewell, and all your governmental colleagues on this issue say it is safe. It is a lie
that greedy corporate leaders in Oil, like Exxon, and Chevron companies lie to the public even in their ads.
They do not admit the horrible fact about methane gases.

There is a video on utube of scientist, Anthony Ingraffea of Cornell University who tells you all about the harm that fracking does.
It is a fact. I have several videos where fracking caused fires, caused pollution of methane gas leaks into some States
lakes and creeks and shows men trying to remove it. You are exposing Americans to huge health problems.

As President, you are surrounded by inempt EPA people, Sally Jewell, Ken Salazar and others. Being an intelligent,
active environmentalist, all you have to do is be updated by NRDC, the Sierra Club and other highly reputable
environmental groups who will tell you the truth about how harmful it is. When are you going to join Denmark
and Germany's lead in going solar and wind---clean, safe sources of energy?

So, please watch the utube video as stated above, and enquire personally with the Sierra Club or NRDC.
I am speak for thousands upon thousands of environmentalists, both professionals, and grassroots people like myself
who want you to ban fracking and go to the only source of clean energy which is wind and solar.

A staunch Democrat who voted for you twice and has 4 bumper stickers of you on my car that I am about to remove.
