Over 200 wells have been fracked in California’s oceans, where oil companies employ toxic chemicals and pollutants that can cause cancer. This dangerous practice poses a grave threat to numerous endangered species, such as the iconic blue whale – as well as surfers and swimmers, and the entire southern coast of the state. The oil industry has federal permission to dump more than 9 billion gallons of wastewater a year directly into the ocean. Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” is a dangerous oil-and-gas drilling technique that threatens California’s water, air, public health, endangered wildlife and climate. Join the Center for Biological Diversity in Ventura to bring attention to offshore fracking as the California Coastal Commission holds its monthly meeting, and urge the Commissioners to halt the dangerous practice. Email Hillary Aidun to RSVP or if you have any questions, or call Hillary at 415-632-5335. Learn more about fracking offshore and onshore.
