- Local Production

Who are you going to believe, when it comes to fracking in California: The California Department of Conservation? Or anti-oil activists?
CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CONSERVATION 2015: “In California, hydraulic fracturing has been used as a production stimulation method … with no reported damage to the environment.”
California produces 37 percent the oil we use. And every drop of oil produced in California stays in California. But that means more than 60 percent must be imported by train or by boat from other states and foreign countries.
So when anti-oil activists say that California should keep all of its oil in the ground, they’re advocating importing the oil we need. It doesn’t make sense.
California should produce as much oil locally, where producers operate under the strictest environmental regulations in the nation. It’s commonsense: More local oil, more jobs, strict environmental protections.
Produce locally, think globally.
