All of these anti-fracking actions happened in the week since Obama’s pro-gas climate speech!

Share this if you stand with friends on the shale fields fighting for their survival from the onslaught of fracking — and with friends everywhere standing up against extreme energy. Real climate leadership looks like a U-turn on fracking!
