The Bureau of Lang Management's new draft fracking rules are even weaker than in the past. Sadly, these regulations seem designed to encourage as much fracking as possible, while doing little to protect the environment or people's health.

Now's our chance to ensure the feds take real steps to protect our national treasures. Tell the Bureau of Land Management to ban fracking on our public lands.

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, uses huge volumes of water mixed with dangerous chemicals to blast open rock formations and extract oil and gas. Fast-growing new fracking technologies are quickly transforming landscapes from Pennsylvania to California -- and our prized public lands have become targets for fracking developers.

Rocky Mountain National Park is already suffering from air-quality problems due to drilling and fracking on nearby public lands. Southern Utah's Arches and Canyonlands national parks are surrounded by public lands targeted by industry. And the Bureau of Land Management in Colorado plans to auction off nearly 12,000 acres of public lands for oil and gas drilling -- and the majority of those acres are located less than 10 miles from Mesa Verde, another of our iconic national parks.

The best way to protect these national treasures along with our air, water, health and climate from the dangers of fracking is to simply prohibit this form of fuel extraction. And where better to start than by protecting public lands by banning fracking?
