Help Halt Fracking in California

Together we can make history in California with legislation that would place a moratorium on fracking.

Fracking is a dangerous, rapidly spreading oil and gas extraction technique that endangers our state's water, air, wildlife, climate and public health. Despite the grave risks, California doesn't require oil and gas companies to report when or where they are fracking wells -- or what toxic chemicals they use.

California already has serious water shortages and pollution problems; fracking will only worsen these grave threats to public health. The pollution and intense industrial development associated with the technology threaten key wildlife habitat as well as our agricultural industry. And fracking will greatly undermine California's efforts to address the climate crisis.

But that could change with current legislation in the California Assembly: Despite intense pressure from the oil industry, Assembly Bill 1301, which would put a moratorium on fracking our state, won a key vote, passing out of the Assembly Natural Resources Committee.

But the battle is far from over. Please take action using the form below; tell your legislators to protect California from a fracking disaster by supporting A.B. 1301.
