Earthworks protects communities and the environment from the impacts of irresponsible mining, drilling and fracking.

Its Oil & Gas Accountability Project brings the voices and stories of people living with oil and gas in their backyards to decision makers in towns, cities, states and Washington, DC. Earthworks defends environmental, health and community rights in states facing massive oil and gas development and makes sure that states properly enforce the laws already on the books. The organization is pushing to close the federal loopholes that allow energy companies pollute the nation's air, water and land with impunity. The ultimate goal is to change the public perception of natural gas so that it is recognized as a dirty and dangerous fossil fuel and not the path towards a clean energy future.
