Fracking dumps 698 carcinogens into drinking water and vents toxic volatile organic compounds like benzene 24/7. If China or Russia tried to do this to our air and water, we would imprison and/or kill them, because poisoning the air and water is an act of war. Frackers circumvented the clean water act in 2004 by getting an exemption spearheaded by Dick Cheney/Halliburton. This is the man that lied us into the Iraq war and made $39.5 billion in blood money. Venoco has a very long history of poisoning people and lying about it for profit. (Source- "Parts Per Million" by Joy Horowitz) Fracking has created flammable tap water across the USA, (Source, Oscar winning documentary "Gasland"). I am voting YES ON P because I am a mammal who needs clean drinking water for my kids and I.

SBCC is asking taxpayers for $288 million. What an obscene boondoggle! SBCC should use money from registration fees and Alumni donors. Hey SBCC - Go fund yourself!

Will all those in favor of Fracking please drink one large glass of fracking's by-product, flammable tap water? Poisoning drinking water is an act of war. If the Chinese or Russians tried to do it, we would kill them and/or imprison them, and rightfully so. If you think the oil companies have your best interests at heart, please google "Exxon Valdes", "B.P. oil spill", "Parts per million" by Joy Horowitz, and "Suppressed Inventions" by Jonathan Eisen. Oil and gas are 19th century technologies. http://www.amazon.com/Suppressed-Inve...

As someone with several family members who served in the US Navy,Captain Lawrence Vasquez and the US Navy are behaving irrationally and completely lack common sense. The US Navy is asking us to believe that nearly 70 years after the end of WW2, with decades of campers, NPS employees fisherman, campers and surfers walking around the island, now Vasquez says the island is unsafe? I am calling BS on that.If that's true, then Vasquez or someone in the Navy should be court martialed and denied a pension for allowing an unsafe situation for 70 years. Of course what is more likely is that what is happening is more of the Federal Government's usual M.O., which is to gain control of land by lying, then horribly mis-manage it. Reminds me of another recent misguided San Diego politician Duncan Hunter who wanted to preserve the island for handicap vets to hunt on a few years ago. Then they actually went there and realized that wheelchairs can't roll on the rocky uneven terrain. The channel Islands are beautiful and unspoiled, they should be left alone and remain as one of the very few unspoiled places in CA.
