California cannot afford to continue wasting water on fracking. It not only endangers our communities, but also our climate. With your drought declaration it’s clear the time is now: Stop fracking in California immediately.Governor Brown, you have authority to place an immediate ban on fracking in California and it’s time you use it! We need your leadership.

Governor Brown just declared a drought emergency in California and now he needs to put an immediate halt to water-intensive fracking.
This drought is already devastating farmers livelihoods, causing an increased risk of wildfires, and threatening our water supplies. So why is the Governor still allowing fracking to take place? Fracking wells can consume between 2 and 10 MILLION gallons of water in their lifetime. There's no excuse for inaction.
