Trump Wants to Expand Fracking in California



The Trump administration last Thursday released a plan to open up more than a million acres of public and private land to hydraulic fracturing in California. The lands being targeted cover several Central California counties including eastern Fresno, western Kern, Kings, Madera, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Tulare and Ventura.

California has had a 5-year fracking moratorium on federal land after a judge ruled for a pause in operations to better study the health and environmental impacts. As it already stands California's central valley has some of the worst air quality in the state. The plan is expected to be blocked by lawsuits that environmental groups are already readying.
