Stand with the sisters against this Kentucky fracking pipeline

To be delivered to Steve Beshear, Kentucky Governor

Petition Statement

The Sisters of Loretto have raised important concerns about the safety and the environmental impact of the Bluegrass Pipeline and fracking. Please oppose this pipeline and protect Kentucky's homes, land and drinking water.
There are currently 1,421 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

After poisoning drinking water and increasing earthquake risk throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, now the fracking industry wants to build a dangerous pipeline through the heart of Kentucky, including hundreds of acres of historic farmland that an order of nuns have lived on for nearly 200 years.

The proposed pipeline would be operated by a chemical company with a record of fatal accidents. A spill or accident along this route could blow up homes or poison drinking water in over 18 counties.

The pipeline company is surveying routes right now and threatening to use eminent domain to take private land. The Sisters of Loretto are bravely standing up to the fracking industry and have refused to let surveyors on their land.

They've also taken the fight to Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear--but so far, he's declined to take action. Now it's time to get his attention by showing that thousands of people across the country are standing with these courageous nuns.
