Mayor Robert Garcia and the City Council of the City of Long Beach, please ban or prohibit the methods of extracting fossil fuels, aka, fracking, within the municipality of Long Beach City.
Why is this important?
Governor Cuomo of New York has declared a statewide ban on fracking. Local citizen-led initiatives have helped ban fracking in Mendocino and San Benito counties in California; Athens, Ohio; Mora, New Mexico; and Denton, Texas. Communities across the United States and world are saying NO to this environmentally disastrous method of extracting fossil fuels from the land.
It is time for Mayor Garcia & the City Council to take action and ban fracking in the city of Long Beach, CA now.
