Los Angeles: Urge California to Ban Fracking Now
Please join Center for Biological Diversity staff in Los Angeles on Feb. 19 to tell the state: "Ban fracking now."
Hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," is a dangerous oil and natural gas extraction technique associated with more than 1,000 documented cases of water contamination across the country. With an estimated 15 billion barrels of frackable oil in California’s Monterey Shale, we are on the cusp of a fracking boom that threatens to pollute our air and water and hurt our state's wildlife. But state officials don't yet monitor fracking or even know where this dangerous practice is taking place.
The agency overseeing oil and gas extraction is holding a workshop to gather public input on fracking Tuesday, Feb. 19, in Los Angeles. Attend this workshop, learn more about the state’s plans to address fracking, and tell Governor Brown and the California Department of Conservation to ban fracking in our state.
