"Fracking," or hydraulic fracturing, is a dangerous drilling technique that endangers our state's water, air, wildlife and public health. And yet, California regulators don't currently track when or where fracking is occurring, let alone protect California from its many dangers.
More than 1,000 documented cases of water contamination across the country have been associated with fracking. California officials, in response to public concern, have issued draft regulations to govern fracking, but the proposed regulations would keep fracking shrouded in secrecy and do almost nothing to protect our air, water or climate.
The best way to protect California is to ban fracking now.
Please use the form below to ask the California Department of Conservation, which is charged with overseeing oil and gas drilling, to impose a ban on fracking in California before irrevocable damage is done to our state and the natural resources we all value.
