S.B. Residents Join Big Anti-Fracking Rally

More than 100 Santa Barbara County residents took part in an 8,000-person rally in Oakland last weekend, pushing Gov. Jerry Brown to outlaw fracking, cyclic-steam injection, and other oil-drilling methods in California as a way to move toward renewable energy sources.

Last month, activists promoted the rally alongside a call to keep watch on S.B. operations, which were the target of last year’s Measure P initiative.
