This was necessary, in that they started fracking on the San Andreas fault, and since there have been several incidents of seismic activity associated with fracking, that it is truly madness to frack along such a sensitive fault!

Incidentally I just came back from Tribeca film Festival, where I saw Gasland II - Josh Fox was there, as was the Mayor of Dish Texas - so named because they were all offered 10 yrs of free "dish TV) in exchange for access to their land, it is now nearly a ghost town, their property vlues have plummeted, and several have suffered serious health effects, but again have been offered hush money (nearly the value of their property, to keep quiet and move, the California pursuit is also mentioned in the 21/2 hr. documentary - which I found riveting, seems that opponents to fracking are considered insurgents by the industry, and a lot of us may find ourselves on "enemies of the State lists"!
There are 2 more showings at the festival, Fri - and I'm not quite sure the last - will let you know if interested!

Glad that California is working toward eliminating fracking from their state. It all seems like a quick fix to our environment addiction to quick energy but when you can light a match under a water spicket, your in deep trouble.
Green renewables are the way to go to help save Mother Earth.

I wish we had the same movement in Colorado. So many people here are willing to sell out to the industry for jobs and tax revenue. Meanwhile, we are in and endless drought and the water tables underground are being poisoned by insane fracking that has been taking place here for at least the last decade. What will we do when the water's gone?

Then they are stupid. Fracking? A horror that poisons people, the environment, and animals. If that's what you want, then support it.
