Be a Guardian for the Greater Chaco: Defend Communities, Culture and Climate

The Greater Chaco region of northwest New Mexico is under siege by fracking. Despite calls from Tribal leaders, communities, and elected officials, the Trump administration is barreling ahead with plans to allow up to 3,000 new fracking wells in the region, which will bring more air pollution and more water contamination to this culturally integral landscape. Even worse, these plans come amid the coronavirus pandemic, which is hitting northwest New Mexico and the Navajo Nation particularly hard. This is a critical time for this critical issue, so please join us in pushing back, and stepping it up, to defend Greater Chaco.

Tweet to #ProtectChaco! We’ve assembled six ready-to-go tweets, complete with images and a link to the action alert. All you have to do is “grab-n-go” to help raise awareness and make a big difference in the defense of the Greater Chaco region. Thank you!

Tweet #1

The Bureau of Land Management’s new plan for up to 3,000 additional #fracking wells in the Greater Chaco region fails to provide any assessment of the current impacts of fracking to human health and communities in the region. Act now to #ProtectChaco: https://guardiansaction.org/GreaterChaco


Tweet #2

Ignoring previous promises to protect communities and the culture of the Greater Chaco region from #fracking, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management wants to open the door for more than 3,000 new oil and gas wells in the region. Act now to #ProtectChaco: https://guardiansaction.org/GreaterChaco

 

Tweet #3

It takes over three million gallons of water to frack a single oil and gas well in the Greater Chaco region. For every barrel of oil, 4-12 times as much toxic, radioactive waste is generated. Submit your comments to #ProtectChaco from more #fracking: https://guardiansaction.org/GreaterChaco

 

Tweet #4

A Trump administration plan for managing #publiclands and minerals in northwestern New Mexico’s Greater Chaco region would sacrifice cultural integrity, endanger communities, and jeopardize #cleanair, water, and the #climate. Act now to #ProtectChaco: https://guardiansaction.org/GreaterChaco

 

Tweet #5

The Greater Chaco region is home to Chaco Culture National Historical Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and ancestral pueblo kivas and dwellings. Sadly, the region has been under siege by #fracking. We have to fight back to #ProtectChaco: https://guardiansaction.org/GreaterChaco

Despite calls from Tribal leaders, communities, and elected officials, the Trump administration is barreling ahead with plans to allow even more #fracking, more air pollution and more water contamination in Greater Chaco region.
