Last week the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy and Minerals held a hearing entitled, “Energy Independence: Domestic Opportunities to Reverse California’s Growing Dependence on Foreign Oil”. This hearing was a thinly-veiled promotional exercise for increasing oil drilling and fracking in the Golden State.
   
California knows a lot about the perils of oil drilling; forty-five years ago, ‘the oil spill heard round the world’ off the shore of Santa Barbara led Californians to ban offshore drilling. Concerns about the impacts of climate change have led the Golden State to take a leading role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions statewide, and setting standards that other states and nations are following. A popular movement in California is calling for an end to fracking for oil and gas, as a bill calling for a moratorium on fracking, SB 1132, gains momentum in Sacramento.

 

This is why the hearing in Washington DC is out of touch with the people of California.
