Sierra Club Green Friday: Fracking in California: Can We Still Be a Climate Leader?

Friday | March 14, 2014 | 7:00 pm — 9:00 pm

Sierra Club SF Bay Chapter | 2530 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94702

Green Fridays is a monthly lecture series that meets on the second Friday of the month focusing on important environmental issues of our time. All are invited. Doors open at the Sierra Club office, 2530 San Pablo Ave., Berkeley, Ca. one block south of Dwight Way at 7pm for snacks and drinks. Lecture presentation is at 7:30 until 9pm. Parking is on the street.

Fracking and acidizing, techniques that the oil industry wants to greatly expand in California, pose major risks to the water we drink, the air we breathe, our climate, and our future. They could drive California backwards instead of forwards as the climate leader. We will discuss efforts to stop fracking including state legislation, local initiatives, rallies, demonstrations, and bird-dogging Gov. Brown.

Presenters will be from the Bay Chapter’s “Don’t Frack California” team.
