Fracking for natural gas creates an immediate danger to local air and water quality. Gas pipelines that criss-cross our state lead to additional danger as recent nearby pipeline explosions have proven. Properly regulated extraction could theoretically happen safely but our state has shown that we are completely unable to regulate this industry. Finally, no amount of regulation will address the climate change impacts of burning a fossil fuel which has been driving flooding in our area. Our state needs a plan to transition to 100% renewable energy.
