Activists Urge Fracking Halt at Legislative Hearing

Anti-fracking activists delivered 150 thousand petition signatures to Governor Jerry Brown calling for a halt to fracking in California. The controversial oil and gas drilling practice has sparked opposition nation-wide, including a ban in New York State. The technique was the subject of a recent study by the California Council on Science and Technology that led to a joint legislative hearing Tuesday morning.
