The Sierra Club's Northern Alameda County Group will be hosting its monthly zero-waste Green Friday Potluck with speaker and discussion at the Chapter Office at 2530 San Pablo Ave. in Berkeley. California is getting fracked: Fracking, a process that uses toxic chemicals and water to extract oil and gas, is well underway in California and is slated for massive expansion. Fracking has been shown to cause air pollution, water pollution, and even earthquakes. The talk will focus on what can be done to stop this practice before it destroys California's environment. Our speaker will be Adam Scow, the California Campaigns Director at Food & Water Watch. He is responsible for developing strategy for local, state, and national campaigns. Adam has guided several successful campaigns across California to protect water as a public resource and prevent privatization of local water systems. The optional potluck starts at 6 and the presentation begins at 7. Suggested donation $2 for expenses. Please bring a healthy dish to share with ingredient list if applicable. Beverages and tableware will be provided. Contact: Ken Peterson, kenpeterson45 [at] att [dot] net .
