On March 21, faith leaders held a Rally and Lobby Day in Harrisburg to present a MORALtorium on fracking. Their position was stated as follows:
As people of faith we are seeking:
MORALtorium on future drilling of new wells that involve hydraulic fracking and a halt to the development of related infrastructure;
Full funding for the examination of existing PA wells to monitor for methane leaks polluting the air and gas leaks polluting the water;
Full funding for cleanup of contaminated wells which cause health and safety problems for Pennsylvania;
Support for the renewable energy jobs;
Community transition support and the retraining of workers displaced from fossil fuel jobs for the emerging renewable energy sector.
