Every person that lives in Ventura County deserves
clean air to breathe and clean water to drink!
And we recognize that some communities are allowed to become sacrifice zones -
areas where it is ok to add more pollution - that has to stop!GOAL: 77 signatures
By signing below I declare my support of the appeal of the Renaissance Petroleum expansion of the Cabrillo Oil Field in Oxnard. The project was approved by Ventura County without proper assessment related to environmental justice and the County has failed to consider the whole of the project as required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
We have an Environmental Justice problem in Ventura County and our local government must work to end the practice of maintaining sacrifice zones - areas where more pollution is allowed because there is already pollution occurring. Ventura County must work to truly reduce pollution in communities that are overly burdened. The residents around this project do not deserve any more pollution!
The County must put public health and the environment first!
The County must study the true impacts on the health and lives of the people who live around Etting Road -
- impacts from increased hour of trucking,
- increasing actual air emissions,
- increasing risks of spill and leaks on soil and water.

Help CFROG ensure oil and gas projects in Ventura are only allowed when
public health and the environment are protected!
With everything going on at the federal level - local government is all that more important. It is our local Board of Supervisors who have the land use authority to approve or deny new oil drilling in Ventura County and to ensure all operators are complying with the law. CFROG is keeping an eye on local government - we are YOUR oil and gas watchdog organization.

watchdog on duty bringing information to the need for change in how, where, when and if oil and gas is drilled, transported and trucked in CA…
There were over 35 people 32 of which were there to oppose allowing the opening of the Piru oil field with out a full Environmental Impact Report! CFROG, Los Padres Forest Watch, Sierra Club, Audubon Club, Assembly Member Das Williams representative, CA Nurses Association, Patagonia and others spoke out in support of an EIR. John Brooks, President of CFROG asked for missing email documents that were not given to us to review and mentioned that the site of the proposed wells was not clearly defined in the report so that the public couldn’t give specific testimony to this permit for exploratory wells.
Ventura Sierra Club and other activists did an excellent job and turned out big time to voice concerns about fracking regulations.

Most Californians want fracking regulated – PPIC & Irvine Foundation polling results
September 25, 2013 9:00pm
More Californians (5t percent) continue to oppose than favor (32 percent) increased use of fracking, according to a statewide survey released Wednesday evening by the non-partisan Public Policy Institute of California, with funding from the James Irvine Foundation.
Support for stricter state regulation of fracking has increased slightly since July, from 50 percent of adults (and 56 percent of likely voters) to 56 percent today (61 percent likely voters).
When asked specifically about two components of a new state law — SB4 — requiring oil companies to obtain permits and requiring them to disclose information on chemicals used in oil extraction techniques — most (80 percent adults, 87 percent likely voters) are in favor.
ABOUT THE SURVEY
The PPIC Statewide Survey was conducted with funding from the James Irvine Foundation. Findings are based on a telephone survey of 1,703 California adult residents interviewed on landlines and cell phones from Sept. 10-17.
Interviews were conducted in English or Spanish, according to respondents’ preferences.
The sampling error, taking design effects from weighting into consideration, is ±3.7 percent for all adults, ±4.0 percent for the 1,429 registered voters, and ±4.5 percent for the 1,102 likely voters.
and you can hear CFROG supporters discuss future of Ventura County fracking at the Ojai Democratic Club meeting next Monday at 7 pm at Ojai Art Center along with others from CA Democratic Party Environmental Caucus and local reporters….
Vickie Peters excellent work brings visual representations that are startling and scary. (if it were a Halloween costume that’s OK, but these are real!)
