Protect Arches and Canyonlands from fracking | CREDO

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is on the verge of opening over 80,000 acres of land just miles from Arches and Canyonlands national parks to the dangerous new method of oil and gas drilling called fracking.

Despite the clear danger to these precious national treasures, and serious concerns over nearby Moab’s drinking water, BLM is moving forward with a February oil and gas lease auction without even preparing an environmental impact statement to determine the full consequences.

BLM should be protecting precious places like Arches and Canyonlands, not blindly paving the way for oil and gas companies to endanger them.
