Help stop the Trump administration from opening up more than 700,000 acres of federal land in Central and Northern California to new fossil fuel development — including fracking — in four counties where fracking is explicitly banned (Alameda, Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz).
A drilling and fracking boom will devastate these wildlands and neighboring communities and risk irreparable harm to our air and water. Opening up hundreds of thousands of acres to new oil and gas exploration is also terrible climate policy and will undercut our state’s commitment to clean, renewable energy. Given the Trump administration’s open hostility toward environmental protection, California’s leadership on this front is absolutely crucial.
Fortunately we still have a chance to stop this proposal. The Bureau of Land Management is planning to hold three public hearings on this issue in March. We need you there!
