Webinar: Fracking in California
March 29, 2013
Time: 12:30 - 1:30 pm PDT
Register here »
You've heard of hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," as a process used to extract gas and oil from rock on the East Coast. Fracking also happens in California and oil and gas companies are hoping to frack even more; however, fracking has been connected to a range of public health and environmental impacts.
Join us for a March 29th webinar as we provide an overview of oil and gas extraction in California, discuss fracking and its impacts on public health and the environment, and lay out the various regulatory and legislative efforts underway to address the quickly expanding use of fracking in California.
We'll focus on the regulatory and legislative efforts to keep the startling list of chemicals injected into the environment during fracking secret from the public, to require doctors and other health professionals sign a confidentiality agreement before being able to access information about chemicals to which a patient has been exposed, and to prohibit gathering data about impacts of exposure to those chemicals.
At the end of this hour, we hope you'll be ready to work to ensure that protection of public health is front and center in the discussion of fracking, chemical policy, and stopping gag rules on doctors. Space is limited, so please register today!
Contact Angela Johnson Meszaros at PSR-LA to discover other opportunities for engaging in our efforts to ensure that fracking does not threaten public health. Angela can be reached via e-mail or phone at 213-689-9170.
