Obama must be urged to keep promise on fracking.

"In his State of the Union speech, President Obama promised that drilling and fracking for natural gas would happen "without putting the health and safety of our citizens at risk."

Oil and gas companies are trying to get Obama to go back on his word.

On April 17, the Environmental Protection Agency is set to finalize regulations that would reduce lung-burning smog and cancer-causing benzene from fracking and drilling. But the oil and gas industry is lobbying hard for loopholes that would dramatically weaken the rule--and they're taking their fight straight to the White House."

USDA Secretary Vilsack--who oversees the U.S. Forest Service fails to protect Tongass National Forest and Obama Administration fails to speak out on this issue.
"Right now, Congress is considering the fate of many of the finest stands of coastal temperate rainforest in Alaska's Tongass National Forest--considered to be the crown jewel of the U.S. National Forest system.

If passed, this legislation will hand over tens of thousands of acres to Sealaska Corporation for clearcutting and commercial development. Gone will be towering stands of trees as old as 500 years and as big as 10 feet in diameter--some of the richest prizes in this vast old-growth rainforest.

Gone, too, will be the home they provide for eagles, bears, wolves, salmon and countless other species. Also harmed will be the many southeast Alaskans who live off these lands and waters for their subsistence lifestyles and livelihoods, and the many others from across the country who rely upon and visit the Tongass for world-class recreation, hunting, tourism, and sport and commercial fishing."
