California DO NOT consider banning fracking state wide.
Everyone should be against halfcocked moratoriums. Many people believe that everything we do to impede oil and gas development will be a step toward a decarbonized energy future. I’m very committed to our energy future, but you have to recognize our dependence on hydrocarbons and it will take all forms of energy to support this planet.
We need a well-thought-out energy policy that allows a transition to a well-balanced energy future, that respects the need for economic growth not only in this country but around the world. We can drill for oil and gas in a safe and responsible manner while keeping our eye on the need for domestic energy security.
That’s very daunting but it can be done and a moratorium is a job, GDP and future killer for California.
