Tell President Obama and the US DOT to stop oil trains carrying diluted tar sands and fracked shale oil from the Bakken formation—both are more toxic, more explosive, and more carbon-intensive than conventional crude.
This project continues Iowa PSR's efforts to develop strategies for retiring coal-fired boilers in Iowa. For several years, Iowa PSR has been actively involved in research, education, outreach and advocacy efforts to stop new coal plants from coming into Iowa and eventually to shuttering existing coal facilities. Addressing the health costs of coal, I-PSR has worked in conjunction with local environmental advocacy groups like Sierra Club, Iowa Environmental Council, and Green States Solutions as well as social justice legal advocates like Plains Justice.
Sign our petition today telling the oil and natural gas industries to come clean about their non-disclosure agreements that gag victims harmed by fracking.
