No Fracking in California
Big Oil wants to use millions of gallons of our water, lace them with toxic chemicals, and frack for oil from Sacramento to L.A. Talk about a bad idea. If we let oil companies unleash this hugely controversial drilling process, we’ll be in for an environmental nightmare.
Fracking will waste water we don’t have to spare …
On the heels of California’s worst drought in recorded history, the last thing we should do is let water-intensive fracking spread across the state. According to the U.S. Energy Administration, oil companies could drill as many as 25,000 fracking wells in our state — each one using about 10 times more water than a typical California family in one year. Here’s where they’re thinking about fracking:
… not to mention this drilling is dirty and dangerous
It’s not just the fact that fracking wastes water we don’t have. Fracking also laces water with known cancer-causing chemicals, emits global warming pollution, and turns open space into industrial zones. We need to come together right now to ban fracking. Take action now to keep fracking out of California.
Time is running out, and Gov. Brown is leaning the wrong way
In waters off Long Beach, Seal Beach and Huntington Beach, oil companies have used fracking at least 203 times at six sites in the past two decades.
Your activism and our advocacy are a powerful combination and making a big difference on making sure more wells aren’t drilled. But unfortunately, when it comes to fracking, Gov. Jerry Brown is leaning the wrong way. That’s why we’ve launched a major grassroots campaign, and to kick it off, we need to mobilize the public behind a complete ban on fracking in California before it’s too late. Join the thousands of Californians who have already sent a message to the governor.
Our staff have been knocking on doors across the state to educate Californians about what’s at stake. We’re also testifying in Sacramento, educating lawmakers, and shining a spotlight in the media on the need to ban fracking in California.
In fact, we’re building a movement
In addition to our massive grassroots outreach, Environment California has been hosting “Fracktivist Trainings” across the state, teaching critical campaign skills to everyday Californians who want to get involved in the fight against fracking. From Sacramento to Los Angeles, we’ve taught more than 100 Californians ways that they can build support for a ban on fracking. We’re building the anti-fracking movement in California day-by-day and making sure our decision makers get the message loud and clear: Californians don’t want fracking in our state. If you agree, send your message to the governor now.
