Fracking is a dangerous, rapidly spreading oil and gas extraction technique that endangers our state's water, air, wildlife, climate and public health.
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.
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. But that could change with current legislation in the California Assembly: Assembly Bill 1301 would put a moratorium on fracking our state.
The Assembly Natural Resources Committee will discuss A.B. 1301 on April 30. Please take action; tell the committee and your legislators to protect California from a fracking disaster by supporting A.B. 1301.
