The Issues with Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking)

May 21, 2013
Tallahassee, Florida

Time: 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Location:
Unitarian Universalist Church of Tallahassee, 2810 N. Meridian Road (just north of the intersection of John Knox and Meridian Rd on the West side of Meridian)

This presentation, hosted by Warren Brackmann, will show a video about the dangerous health and environmental problems caused by the fracking process. Dr. Ron Saff will be on hand to provide vital information and answer questions.

Hydraulic Fracturing poses an extremely serious problem that potentially threatens the well being of Florida residents and our environment.

The general public is encouraged to attend and participate!

He is a former Environment and Health Section columnist for the Tallahassee Democrat, a member of the Advisory Committee of the Florida Medical Association, and a member of the Physicians for Social Responsibility.  He has participated in Congressional briefings on coal ash regulation and is on the forefront of efforts to stop fracking in Florida.

Action Alerts

  • It's time to put our health before polluter profits

    Climate change is endangering us now, harming public health and causing damage to our communities from extreme weather events. Tell your senators that rolling back methane pollution standards, a key step in our fight against climate change, is unacceptable!

  • Tell Congress: Protect our Health -- Oppose extreme anti-health bills

    Congress should ensure that federal agencies enforce laws that protect our water, air quality and public health--not curb the power of those agencies to carry out their mission. Tell your representative you oppose the REINS Act and the Midnight Rule Relief Act of 2017.
