Fracking in California 101, 11/19/13

20131112frackFracking is expanding all over the country, but it’s also already being used here in California. Understanding what fracking is, how to talk about it, and what can be done to protect communities from its risks are all going to be addressed at a free upcoming workshop, Tuesday, November 19th from 7 to 9 PM.

The Don’t Frack California working group of the SF Bay chapter of the Sierra Club and the Stop Fracking team of 350 Bay Area are holding a joint workshop for those who want to get active in the fight against fracking and other extreme forms of oil extraction in California.

It will give you the information you will need to speak to the public about fracking/acidizing in California and their risks to the water we drink, the air we breathe, and worsening of climate disruption.

The evening will include:

  • Lora Jo Foo of Sierra Club Don’t Frack California will describe the process of fracking/acidizing in California and the risks to water, climate, and public health.
  • Adam Scow of Food & Water Watch will give a review of the past year’s efforts to stop fracking in California.
  • Shannon Biggs and Adam Scow will present Local Efforts 101: How to work with local elected officials to pass resolutions and ordinances against fracking.
  • Breakout Sessions: action-oriented working groups to brainstorm the coming years strategies.
