California farmers, grappling with a record drought that's parching their fields and livelihoods, call on Gov. Brown (D-CA) to place a moratorium on the water-intensive extreme oil and gas extraction process known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking

I most certainly do NOT stand with the 5 huge cotton farming corporations in the southern San Joaquin.

Please be sure that issues of value to you do not cause you to stand with the group that wishes to steal Northern California and Sierra water vital to natural ecosystems , salmon, every animal and indigenous group, every tree and plant , every estuary, watershed existing.

Certainly, NO to fracking, but NO also to the destruction of North American life bu overpopulating humans and their cash-generating fantasies!

Cal, the map shown, is coincident with maps of the exceptional drought in western north Americ. Theentire state, along with areas North and East are included in extreme drought.

Fracking must not be allowed to further poisons groundwater.

Groundwater is not separate from flowing or surface water, but surface water either sinks from streams and water bodies into ground, or are fed by groundwater when the water table is higher than the body.

Let's see. California is one of the most geologically active seismic zones in the US, and we're going to use water to split layers of rock? It's also suffering one of the worst droughts in over 30 years, and we're going to use water to pull up dirty fuel. It's one of the highest food producing states in the union, and we're going to allow unknown and undisclosed contaminants to pollute all of the land used to do that? TOTALLY MAKES SENSE TO ME - NOT! It's time that people start fighting back, I'm afraid.

I didn't see a petition for this one, but I have signed other petitions against fracking in Calif. Gov. Brown has previously been environmentally reasonable, so I don't know why he's taking so long to take a stand against fracking. The majority of Californians are against it.

The fracking in Oklahoma has led to earthquakes and the industry has admitted that. The LAST place they should be fracking is California! Just a little more of that and Cali will slip right off into the Ocean!
Yeah, sure, let's "Drill, Baby, DRILL" said no one in California, ever!

Everyone must oppose fracking. Thank you.

i wonder if everyone who is against fracking is also willing to give up some of the comforts all that extra energy provides - like hot water, running water, traansportation, heating in winter, cooling in summer, etc, etc, etc. i am but i am retired & no longer raising children so it's not so hard for me but what about all those of us who have gotten so spoiled that we think absolutely necessary many things that most people in our world have no hope of achieving?

The opposition to fracking is growing in the UK this is a dirty filthy way to extract shale oil and uses huge amounts of water for very little gain.The communities affected by this may never fully recover.People who live in communities affected will find that their property values will be greatly diminished.
