West Virginia: It's a Nice Place to Visit But We Aren't Allowed to Live Here... NO MORE SPILLS!

To be delivered to Randy C. Huffman, Cabinet Secretary WV Department of Environmental Protection, The West Virginia State House, The West Virginia State Senate, and Governor Earl Ray Tomblin

Petition Statement

We, the undersigned, are asserting and demanding that our rights to clean air, clean water, and clean soil be protected. We will no longer be sacrificed in the name of toxic energy production.
There are currently 1,635 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Our Leaders in WV have turned our state over to the destruction caused by oil and gas extraction. Just as our long history with coal mining has proven; little more than lip service has or is being paid to the health and welfare of our citizens or the environment upon which we depend. Every day we face more contamination and potential death due to spills, pipeline ruptures, well explosions, dangerous roads and heavy equipment traffic. Lives have already been lost. We do not need jobs that kill. We need leaders who will focus on developing renewable energy which will guarantee jobs and a cleaner environment for our children well into the future. West Virginia must also be concerned about our neighbors living up wind and down stream from our ever increasing poisonous emissions. West Virginia is our home. We insist that our home be protected.
