What we're about
Welcome to our Angeles Chapter Fracking Committee!
Our mission is to raise awareness about the grave risks unconventional oil production poses to our health, water, air, seismic activity, property values and global warming. Almost 60% of Californians want fracking banned now. Let's make it happen!
You can use this group in two ways. Of course, we hope you will want to join our meetings in normal "meetup" fashion. But if you have small children, are busy with work and can't find the time, this is also a "virtual meetup." A place to come for news about actions you can take regarding legislation or city council meetings. You can have a powerful role at your computer helping to get the word out to friends and neighbors about what is happening here now, without our permission and without our knowledge.
This is also a place where you can upload videos and photos of your neighborhood oil field (in Discussions/forums). Ask questions and answer them. Become a citizen-reporter.
Check "Pages" for News and Videos about health, water, air, earthquakes, global warming, and actions you can take.
Check "Discussions/forums" for info about the Los Angeles Oil Fields, how to contact public officials and more.
“These temple destroyers, devotees of ravaging commercialism, seem to have a perfect contempt for Nature, and, instead of lifting their eyes to the God of the mountains, lift them to the Almighty Dollar.”
― John Muir, Sierra Club Founder (1838-1914)
