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.
95% of Carroll depends on groundwater and yet, over the next ten years, ODNR will allow 2,000 unconventional gas wells and permit an underground coal mine without informing the public about potential impacts on water quality.
The Ohio Chapter Political Committee works to endorse and promote pro-environment candidates at the local, state, and national level. Political Action Committee (PAC) donations are also used to support endorsed candidates.
The committee meets regularly and encourages volunteer participation, particularly during the busy campaign season, to assist with research, phone calls, mailings, and candidate interviews. We are also looking for longer-term volunteer committee members who have knowledge of Ohio politics and wish to be part of the endorsement process.
Contact Eric Britton, Political Committee Chair, if you would like to get involved.
