Despite a moratorium on new oil leases off California's coast, some oil and gas companies are extending the life of existing oil operations by fracking: Old leases that should be retiring are adding to our country's addiction to fossil fuels.
Fracking involves the use of toxic chemicals blasted at high pressures to force oil and gas out of subsea rock. The way the law currently stands, some companies are allowed to dump their wastewater directly into the ocean.
Help save whales, dolphins and fish from unnecessary harm -- insist that our leaders bring a stop to this dangerous practice.
Take action today: Sign the petition and urge the California Coastal Commission and other leaders to halt offshore fracking now.
We, the undersigned, call on our leaders to protect public health, wildlife and our climate from offshore fracking's risks. California's coast is a natural treasure, upon which millions of people and animals depend. But now oil companies are threatening entire ecosystems by intensifying drilling with toxic fracking techniques. Please act now to halt this dangerous practice and preserve our oceans for future generations.
