Fracking
 

Please place a moratorium on new fracked gas pipelines.   Not only does existing infrastructure more than meet our needs already, but fracking poses a significant risk to the environment, including air, water and the stability of our land.   For a brief summary of the dangers posed by fracking to our communities and our environment, please see https://www.greenpeace.org/usa/global-warming/issues/fracking/    Fracking is NOT a solution - even temporary - to climate change; it will make things worse not better.  We should be investing in clean, renewable resources like solar and wind power that do not pose a danger to the environment and the people of Virginia.
