Tell Governor Jerry Brown: It's time to ban fracking

Governor Jerry Brown’s oil and gas officials recently released weak draft regulations that take a narrow, oil industry-friendly approach to fracking and leave California’s dwindling water supplies exposed to fracking pollution.

No regulations can make fracking, acidizing or other radical methods of extracting oil from shale safe. Governor Brown faces a choice: Stand up to the fracking industry and ban these inherently dangerous, planet-warming practices, or sacrifice his climate legacy, along with the health and safety of countless Californians, by signing off on Big Oil's disastrous plan to frack California.

What's more, if Jerry Brown doesn't stop fracking in this bellweather state, it will become even harder to stop it in other states around the country.

Please submit a comment now to tell Governor Brown to keep fracking out of California.
