Add comment on:Federal Agency Launches Review of Fracking Risk on California Public Lands
Center for Biological Diversity
The federal government announced on August 2 the start of two new analyses of fracking risks to California public lands. The Bureau of Land Management’s decision to begin developing a new “environmental impact statement” for fracking in Central California, along with a statewide independent scientific assessment of the dangerous oil extraction process, comes in the wake of a legal victory earlier this year in a suit brought by the Center for Biological Diversity and the Sierra Club, which challenged the BLM’s decision to auction off about 2,500 acres of land in Monterey County to oil companies.
