Update on Efforts to Ban Fracking in Chaco Canyon and Ban the Building of the Piñón Pipeline
With Rebecca Sobel, former news reporter and fracking campaigner at Wildearth Guardians & Erik Schlenker-Goodrich of the Western Environmental Law Center with Brian Sweeney WELC’S communications director
Moderators: Les Lakind & KSFR radio host Xubi Wilson
The Greater Chaco region of northwestern New Mexico is facing unprecedented threats as the Bureau of Land Management approves more fracking. The region’s native communities, clean air, water, and our climate are all at risk. Together with a coalition of local, regional, and national organizations and individuals, we’re pushing back, filing suit to put the brakes the oil and gas industry and calling on our Congressional leaders to stand up for a healthy future. Help keep Chaco frack-free!
