The Stop Fracking California committee of 350 Bay Area is working to ban the oil and gas extraction process of hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, as well as other extreme forms of oil extraction in California. Fracking, acidizing and other extreme oil extraction methods threaten to contribute a larger greenhouse gas footprint than coal over a twenty-year time frame as well as pollute water, land and air in areas where it is being done.
We plan on coordinating our efforts with groups already working to bring a halt to fracking and other extreme forms of oil extractions, in California. Our focus will be on the potential increase in greenhouse gas emissions and resulting climate impacts that will occur if these dangerous processes are allowed in California.
Watch the live stream of a Fracking and Public Health Forum that took place on July 23, 2014 at the SF Public Library.
350.org and other environmental organizations, hosted by Center on Race Poverty and the Environment toured Kern County, hotbed of fracking activity and consequences. The resulting video urges Governor Brown to come see the impacts of fracking on the residents of Kern Co. Watch the video and sign the petition:
Then download the petition and get others to sign. Directions for completed petitions are on the bottom of the petition.
