Don't Frack California

Action: Stop Pollution

March 21, 2013   Action Alert ID# 81

 

Across the country, more than 1,000 documented cases of water contamination have been associated with fracking, which pollutes our air and emits methane, a highly potent greenhouse gas. It also opens up new areas to fossil fuel development at a time when we need to transition rapidly to a clean and renewable energy future.

California's officials, in response to public concern, have issued draft regulations to govern fracking, but the proposed regulations would keep the practice shrouded in secrecy and do almost nothing to protect our environment.

State legislatures in New York, New Jersey and Vermont have already enacted bans or moratoriums on this inherently dangerous activity. California should follow their lead and prohibit fracking to protect our wildlife, our natural resource base and our health.

Please sign the Center's petition to urge California to ban fracking.
