signed Ban fracking in California! 2014-02-28 10:19:40 -0800
We need to keep as much fossil fuel material in the ground as possible. Fracking is a totally unacceptable new means of contaminating our soils, atmosphere and water as well as accelerating climate change. Invest instead in efficiency, reduction of energy usage and nonharmful alternatives for the future of California and the world. We don’t need more petroleum; we need more conservation.

Tell Governor Brown to ban fracking in California!

Sign our petition asking Governor Brown to lead efforts to prevent the climate change catastrophe of expanded drilling for dirty oil in California.

Governor Jerry Brown:

We recognize your strong commitment to protecting our climate and call on you to ban fracking in California.  Fracking accelerates climate disruption.  Fracking and the use of fracked oil will produce a huge increase in greenhouse gas emissions, virtually wiping out progress made by California toward emissions reduction.  I want California to move forward to clean, renewable energy and leave dirty shale oil in the ground.  New York, New Jersey and Vermont have already enacted bans or moratoriums on fracking.  California has always been the leader in fighting climate disruption.  We call on you to provide that leadership now and ban fracking to ensure our children and theirs will have a habitable earth to live on.
