Frackistan

No Frackistan, Please

The California Department of Conservation (DOC) is currently soliciting  comments from the public on its proposed oil and gas regulations, with the comment period open through January 14, 2014. (You can see them here.) But the truly cautious choice would be a ban on fracking until the effects on people, animals, our air and water, and the global environment are better understood. The fracking industry should shoulder the burden of proving itself safe, rather than pursuing a “shoot first and ask questions later” policy.

If you’d like to see a fracking ban in place, please sign the petition at EcoWatch, or contact the governor’s office directly.

Here’s a link to the complete article we wrote on this topic.
