Fracking involves injecting millions of gallons of water, sand, and chemicals thousands of feet underground at high pressure to crack the rock and release trapped pockets of oil and gas. The gas leaks into our water table with the chemicals used to extract it. The damage is irreversible. This dangerous method of oil and gas drilling is already causing poisoned water and air in Wyoming, earthquakes in Ohio, and tap water that lights on fire in Pennsylvania. There is already Frack waste in your water in California, Colorado, and other states. It is not regulated anywhere. The underground explosions risk more earthquakes, and we are already seeing cancer clusters in neighborhoods around frack sites. While we know fracking is happening in California's Monterey Shale formation - which extends from Monterey County and the Central Valley to the Northern Los Angeles area - there are currently no regulations protecting our water from fracking in California. It's not even clear if it can be practiced safely. History has shown that the cement casing crack within 3 years. This is related to the Gulf disaster. Yet the Department of Conservation is moving forward with regulations that will continue to allowing fracking in California. We have enough water problems in California already. There is a global water shortage already. We don't need flammable water too! Until fracking can be demonstrated safe, which is unlikely, Governor Brown should Ban Fracking in California. More info: contact: Elijah Zarlin, Campaign Manager, CREDO Action from Working Assets.

Tom Stokely, former Hayfork resident and Trinity County natural resources planner, is very knowledgeable about the implications of Governor Brown’s “Peripheral Tunnels” project on Trinity River, State of Jefferson and California. July 2012 Governor Brown announced his plan to drill two 33’ tunnels 150 feet under California’s Delta, big enough to siphon the entire Sacramento River to thirsty San Joaquin Valley agribusiness and Southern California cities. Previous plans to build a “Peripheral Canal” were defeated by California voters in 1982 during Brown’s first tenure as governor of California. The Governor is refusing to define any specifics of the project and is asking citizens to just “trust us.” Water export amounts and fishery protection flows are being put off until after project is constructed, a “plumbing before policy” decision to misinform the public about true costs. Cost estimates are significantly underestimated. While Peripheral Tunnel proponents claim that the beneficiaries of the project will pay for it, they are planning on substantial subsidies from state and federal taxpayers amounting to billions more borrowed dollars. Much more cost effective means of providing water supply reliability including recycling, conservation, storm-water capture, desalination and reinstatement of the urban water preference in State Water Project contracts. A cost/benefit study found for every $2.50 spent on project, there would be only $1 in benefits. Tom Stokely worked for 20 years on passage and implementation of 2000 Trinity River Record of Decision that reallocated water back to Trinity River for fishery restoration. He now works for California Water Impact Network and lives in Mt. Shasta. He is a public member of federal advisory committee for Trinity River Restoration Program, the Trinity River Adaptive Management Working Group. California Water Impact Network promotes equitable and environmental use of California's water, including in-stream uses, through research, planning, public education, and litigation.

If you eat meat it is important to know where your meat comes from and how is is raised and slaughtered. If you buy commercially produced meat, you are supporting an industry that is unnecessarily cruel to animals. If you have 11 minutes, please watch this video for a short and painful education about what really happens at commercial animal factories and slaughterhouses. Then consider paying the extra money to buy your meat from local sources in Northern California, where the animals are allowed to live out a more natural life outdoors and are slaughtered more humanely.

"75% of food and fiber we grow today was discovered and cultivated by native farmers and hunter-gatherers of North, Central and South America. These indigenous varieties include corn, beans, peanuts, cotton, potatoes, tomatoes, chili peppers, avocados, blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, squashes, black walnuts, pecans, chocolate, tobacco, rubber, sunflowers, and medicinal herbs and plants."
