To: Governor Gavin Newsom
Looking at you, Gov. Brown
This campaign has ended.
New York has made a bold, smart and principled move by banning hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) for natural gas in their state. Governor Brown, do you have the courage to be the next Governor to ban fracking?
Why is this important?
In a HUGE win for the planet and fractivists everywhere, Gov. Cuomo and his Health Department moved to ban fracking.*
Fracking is a seriously dirty drilling practice that involves blasting a toxic mixture of sand, chemicals and water deep underground to shatter the bedrock, and extract tiny particles of methane gas. The practice has been linked to flamable faucets, polluted drinking water, climate chaos and even earthquakes.**
Despite historic drought, California continues to waste what little water the state has on fracking. With the state's water running dry, tell Jerry Brown to stop fracking and protect California water.
So it should have come as no surprise that when asked whether he would allow HIS family to live next to a fracking site, NY state Department of Health Deputy Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker replied simple "no."***
If fracking isn't safe for New Yorkers, why is it still allowed in most California Counties? Sign here to ask Governor Jerry Brown to step up and BAN fracking in California for good.
