Fracking Threat Looms Just Over the Border in San Benito
Hydraulic Fracturing, or Fracking, has come to our area! Is this method of taking resources safe for us and our communities? Is it the answer to the oil crisis? How will it affect the limited water supply, clean air and traffic in the region? Find out what is involved, the companies behind the effort, the organizations pushing back, current state and county legislation, and what you can do to be an important voice on Fracking in California.
Fracking is already taking place in at least 9 CA counties, and rising oil prices are sparking interest in the Monterey Shale, a geological formation that holds an estimated 15 billion barrels of oil.
Come and find out why you should know all the facts and how you can become involved.

The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD)believes that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature - to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, they work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. They do so through science, law & creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters & climate that species need to survive.

Aromas Cares about our Environment (ACE) is a group of Aromas community members dedicated to the stewardship of their local environment. The group formed upon discovering that some unknown entity was searching for oil reserves under the Aromas in San Benito County. Their focus has been learning about, monitoring for, and educating the public about possible oil and gas extraction in their area and ensuring that sufficient safeguards are in place to protect our water supply and air quality.
Seth Capron has lived in Aromas since the 70’s and is a member of the ACE Coordinating Committee and has spoken at numerous community and public events around the area. He works for a housing agency by day.
