Governor Cuomo of New York just declared a ban on fracking.
Click here to tell Governor Brown that California can't wait, it's time to ban fracking now.
Howard Zucker, the acting New York State Health Commissioner, said a recently released scientific study found that there were "significant public health risks" associated with fracking, including water contamination and air pollution.
In California we have the added problem of drought conditions. The millions of gallons of water used in fracking are an incredible waste of this precious resource.
It is time for Governor Jerry Brown to take action and ban fracking in California now. Click here to let him know.
