Fracking in den USA trifft auf mehr Widerstand
« am: April 01, 2017, 05:50:01 »
Hallo an alle,

anbei die aktuellen Neuigkeiten aus den USA. Der Senat von Maryland hat
mit 35 zu 10 Stimmen für ein Fracking-Verbot gestimmt. Da sich der
repulikanische Gouverneur Hogan bereits ebenfalls für das Verbot
ausgesprochen hatte, wird erwartet, dass seine Unterschrift nun nur noch
Formsache ist.

Maryland to Ban Fracking; Legislature Approves, Republican Governor
Supports Ban

*Maryland Set to Ban Fracking with Support of Republican Governor*

/*“Matters of public health and common-sense environmental protection
need not be partisan.”*/

*Statement of Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director, Food & Water Watch*

*Washington, D.C.*– The Maryland state Senate voted overwhelmingly
tonight to permanently ban fracking statewide, clearing the path for the
ban to become law. Maryland’s Republican Governor Larry Hogan recently
announced his support for the ban, and the bill already passed the
legislature’s lower chamber. When Governor Hogan signs the bill,
Maryland will become the third state in the country to ban fracking
following Vermont and New York. Food & Water Watch was a founding member
of the Don’t Frack Maryland coalition, a lead force in achieving the
ban. In response to the state Senate’s vote today, *Food & Water Watch
Executive Director Wenonah Hauter issued the following statement:*

“With a full-throated endorsement from the state’s Republican governor,
Maryland’s impending ban on fracking brings with it a huge twist in the
politics of dirty fossil fuels. Governor Hogan’s opposition to fracking,
along with a burgeoning Republican-led effort to ban fracking in
Florida, demonstrates that matters of public health and common-sense
environmental protection need not be partisan ones. Now more than ever,
a harsh, revealing light is shining on Democratic Party leaders
throughout the country that have failed to follow the science and public
will against fracking, and stubbornly remain supportive of the hazardous
practice. They include Governors Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania, John
Hickenlooper of Colorado, and most notably, given his reputation as a
climate leader, Jerry Brown of California. These Democratic governors
continue to support fracking in their states, and their failure to lead
is all the more apparent now.

“Maryland’s intent to ban fracking is the latest milestone in a strong
and growing movement to fight fossil fuels throughout the country. This
is a huge victory for public health, common-sense environmental
protection, climate stability and, not least, the power of grassroots
organizing. We are confident that as scientific analysis and public
opinion continue to turn decisively against fracking, victories of this
type will be emulated in many more states in the coming years.”

/Food & Water Watch was a founding member of the Don’t Frack Maryland
coalition, and also a founding member of the New Yorkers Against
Fracking coalition that led the successful movement to ban fracking
there in 2014. Additionally, Food & Water Watch was the first national
organization to call for a ban on fracking everywhere./
