Keep Radioactive Fracking Waste out of Ohio’s Landfills
The fracking industry has a problem – it generates toxic, radioactive waste in the forms of mud from drilling, and liquid from the chemical cocktails used to get fossil fuels from deep underground – and they don’t know where to put it.
Ohio is becoming a dumping ground for fracking waste, and we’re already seeing this waste ending up in our streams. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is failing to ensure the safety of Ohio’s citizens and environment; it’s time for the US EPA to step in.
Check Out Sierra Club Beyond Oil latest production The Dirtiest Oil on Earth, an animation on the dangers of tar sands, the world’s dirtiest oil from Alberta, Canada. The animation, created by Sierra Club Productions features narration by actor Joshua Jackson (Fringe, The Skulls, Dawson’s Creek) and highlights the dangers of spills, pipelines, accidents and the contamination of our air, water, and land.
Sierra Club is working to imagine a world with clean, abundant, affordable energy. One where climate disruption is a fading threat and American soldiers are never again deployed to defend oil fields. One where innovative green industries provide good jobs and supply 100 percent of our energy needs. Imagine a healthier America, with clean air and water, with pristine coasts and protected natural areas. A wealthier, more productive nation, whose leaders answer only to the citizens who elect them. This is America beyond oil.
