CA Ban Fracking in California

Petition to Ban Fracking in California
Culver City Fracking Rally.jpgIntensive new drilling and fracking has come to California.
Fracking an oil or gas well means injecting millions of gallons of fluid — typically a mix of water, sand and chemicals — at a pressure high enough to fracture underground rocks and release oil or gas. The practice is leaving a legacy of air and water pollution in communities across the country, and contributing to global climate change.
Now, the oil and gas industry is targeting natural gas fields in the Sacramento Basin and oil fields in the San Joaquin, Santa Maria, Ventura and Los Angeles Basins. If industry succeeds, generations of Californians would pay the environmental and public health costs.
