The anti-fracking movement is gaining momentum, thanks to documentaries and numerous University studies warning against the toxic chemicals used in the practice. My article urges Californians to join the fight against fracking, and to put pressure on Governor Brown into passing a moratorium. With midterm elections coming up next year, we have the opportunity to get our voice heard, and to elect someone that will represent what we want-- a future powered by clean, renewable energy.
