What the frack is in our drinking water?
UPDATE: Just found out the press conference will be at 10 AM this morning.
Please join us Monday, August 15 at 10:00 AM, as Assemblymember Bob Weickowski holds a Press Conference and Rally in support of the CA Hydraulic Fracking Disclosure bill (AB 591). The rally will be held on the South Steps of the Capitol (10 St & N St). We will deliver thousands of signatures from Californians who demand to know what chemicals are being put in our drinking water from this fracking process.
- As you know, hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is extremely dangerous and poisoning America's drinking water.
- California has an opportunity to lead the rest of the country in stopping fracking by passing its version of the FRAC Act.
- Fracking injects millions of tons of highly toxic chemical fluids into the ground to break apart shale and release natural gas. These chemicals poison America's drinking water, and even causes tap water to ignite!
On that same day, AB 591 will be heard in Senate Appropriations. We need a good showing of support that day, to send a strong signal to the Senate Appropriations Committee that we have solid base of support for this bill. As you may be aware, the Senate is much more moderate than the Assembly, and Big Oil certainly has their influence in that house. We could use your help to break through that wall with a strong showing of support at next Monday’s rally.
This is a “Call to Action” – urging all Californians to demand what is rightfully theirs – the right know what chemicals are being injected into our soil and the right to protect our public health by holding these Corporate Titans accountable.
We look forward to seeing you on Monday!
