Environmental Series: Fracking in Virginia
Virginia is at an energy crossroads. We can choose to maintain the status quo of energy production focused on unearthing our energy fuels or we can choose to reduce air pollution, minimize climate change effects and use modern technology to develop clean energy solutions.
Please join the Virginia Conservation Network, the Virginia League of Conservation Voters Education Fund and our local partners as we explore Virginia’s path to a clean energy future. Most importantly you can find out what you can do to promote clean and renewable energy policies here in Virginia.
Our discussion will focus on the hydraulic fracturing boom that has affected neighboring states and may affect communities in Virginia. Hear the latest news about local efforts to protect against the threats of fracking and learn from experts how to ensure your elected officials make the right decisions for your community.
