Ban fracking and enhance support for solar

Earlier in the week of 8/20 yet another study of the dangers to the water supply from fracking wastewater was released.   The documentation from Oklahoma of the increase in earthquakes and sinkhole development is incontrovertible.   The photos of the erosion and stormwater runoff in some of the most scenic and previously unspoiled areas of the state demonstrated clearly that the promised controls and protections have not been implemented.   The MVP and ACP need stopped and fracking within the state needs to be banned.  There are many questions whether the actual output is needed within the state, regardless of Dominion claims.  Instead of continuing to allow fracking, begin the transition to solar.  Thank you.
