Ban CO2 Fracking - Rally & Lobby Day

Start: Tuesday, March 05, 202410:00 AM

End: Tuesday, March 05, 2024 3:00 PM

The oil and gas industry is back in New York, with a new scheme to evade New York's fracking ban by using carbon dioxide instead of of water.

We must stop this dangerous plan in its tracks

That's why we're rallying in Albany to call for a ban on CO2 fracking, followed by a lobby day to push our legislators to step up and ban this dangerous practice now.

We can win a ban on this destructive practice the same way we banned fracking ten years ago – with overwhelming people power, but it's going to take all of us, working together. Together, the climate movement is more powerful than the oil and gas industry.

Join us on March 5th to support passage of CO2 Fracking Ban Bill S8357/A8866.

See you in Albany!
