  • A description of the injury to the worker might suggest if an explosion occurred because CRC will be liable and they could want initial official records to detail a less severe incident. In this way they can avoid costly legal actions and bad public relations in the local press.

    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.
    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!)

  • Great launch!
