Skip to comments.California’s Brown hears fracking gripes

In a year when California Democrats are worried about motivating their voters, Gov. Jerry Brown heard another unwelcome message Saturday: Some Democratic activists are bristling over his administrations policies on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. [ ]
State Democratic conventions can be boisterous gatherings, but the protesters provided an unscripted distraction in what was otherwise expected to be a unified show of support for the 75-year-old governor, who appears headed for an unprecedented fourth term in the heavily Democratic state.
Fracking gets to the oil that is the dirtiest oil on the planet, said delegate Ken Jones of Greenbrae in Marin County, who was among those waving signs. Its an unsafe practice. To allow it to continue, when we know its unsafe, is a crime.

Marin County. Figures. Get rid of these anti-civilization lunatics.
“Marin County. Figures. Get rid of these anti-civilization lunatics.”
My daughter lives in Petaluma. They want to use existing rail that runs there from Marin, to offer commute service and thereby free up highway 101. So who’s trying their best to stop it? Answer: Marin County. They don’t want a train running through their communities.
Let them all walk everywhere. Barefoot of course since most modern shoes were made with petroleum based resins.
Democrats don't like oil. So ban any imports of oil into or out of California. Ban any use of products made from oil (very few products are not made of oil). Let's just simplify things, and ban Democrats.
Most people do not realize that on LA County beaches you can no longer throw a frisbee or football —to do so you risk a $150 ticket, or something.
SF is trying to make pet stores, bottled water and plastic bags illegal.
A BUNCH of others stuff, too.
On many beaches you can no longer have a bonfire.
That's OK, they'll filter out the dirt at the refinery.
some beaches have removed the fire pits altogether
If the California people think the gas and oil is dirty, then they should stay away from the wells where they have no right to be anyway and not open a valve on a tanker truck where they shouldn't be anyway. Those people are nuts.
In comparison to most Dims in CA, Brown is a Moderate Nazi.
He has vetoed two anti-gun bills that I know of and has been rhetorically strong against the hubris of excess government spending.
Not that he's some kinda Reagan mind you, but he's not EVERYTHING the communist left in CA wants.
I'm thinking he's the best we can hope for in CA....and that's the saddest commentary of all.
Wth all the environmental laws in place in California, it is still one of the most polluted states in the country. And it is run by Democrats.
Someone should write that article.
That retard never heard of refining, and if he did he didn't understand what it meant.
Definitely. Fracking oil is not the dirtiest, by no means. Bad choice of words by the democrats. They are the ones pushing bio-diesel, collecting used cooking oil from restaurants in California cities. Foul, nasty stuff. They'd rather play with that nasty used cooking oil, than the much cleaner fracking oil. Nothing wrong with recycling oil, but they're wrong to knock fracking. Hypocrites.
Sure, Ken. Whatever you say. You sound like a real petroleum expert to me. I'm sure living in Marin County makes you authoritative on the subject.
Frack all those frackers and their fracking gripes.
