Los Angeles City Council Calls for Moratorium on Fracking

Protecting Our Waters

The Los Angeles City Council has voted for a fracking moratorium.

L.A. City Councilmember Paul Koretz took a big step beyond the city boundaries in a statement about his pro-moratorium vote, saying, “As a state, we have to decide which it is: are we protecting our water supply, or not?”

Californians are increasingly active in opposing unconventional drilling — fracking for shale oil — in the Monterrey Shale.

Ecowatch reports that actor and environmental champion Ed Begley, Jr. joined the Council’s press conference, stating, “It is very important that we realize the potential risks that others around the country have already been dealing with and make sure that we do not expose Californians to those risks,” said Begley. “There are just too many unknowns and our citizens cannot afford foolish experimentation with our water, air, health, earthquakes and climate.”

I’m still here just super busy

Hi all. I just wanted to drop in and say hi.

I have been crazy busy at my day job and have been editing at night. I also have a bunch of stuff coming up, weddings, showers, birthday parties, a weekend in CT and I have to plan my daughter’s birthday party. I’ve also started writing my own fiction in the little down time I can find.

September is a crazy month for me. I hope I make it to October 🙂

I was thinking of turning this blog into a website and doing away with my etsy shop. I could keep a page for the blog, combine my green energy blog and make a page for selling my jewelry. I just don’t have time for it all.

What do you all think?

Hope to write some details of what’s been going on lately. Maybe I’ll have some time once my daughter goes back to gymnastics and I sit on the bleachers for an hour a week 🙂
