Thanks Poodle for reminding voters that the P vote is not only about potential water contamination. Santa Maria Energy will become our biggest local air polluter with their newly approved expansion plans, a fact not much discussed in this campaign full of deceptive misinformation.

49erfan, rats , I have one thing in common with you, our shoot themselves in the foot team. Cyclic steam injection has its problems and you know it. In Alberta it has caused a year long leak contaminating fresh water aquifers and the engineers have no clue how to stop it. Locally we have seen sink holes, surface eruptions and one company pulling emergency permits to install containment "cans" to control surface seeping. I believe that the claims of no water contamination will be dispelled when we get more aggressive in testing. Again, what goes on behind locked gates stays behind locked gates. Additionally, SME's latest well expansion approval moves them into 1st place among single entity air polluters allowing them to emit 87,000 tons of greenhouse gasses annually. Stop acting like you guys are saints. I see Sheriff Thomas is posting under two monikers here. Solvangman & formersbso,. What's up with that? More deception?
On Measure P: Shocked

Santa Maria Energy's recently approved expansion plans allow them to add 87,000 tons of air polluting greenhouse gasses annually. This is indisputable fact. It makes them the regions single largest source of air pollution with the equivalent of 17,000 car trips daily. We don't even need to talk about potential water contamination, spills, hundreds of transport truck trips, etc. to know these high impact extraction techniques are bad for our county. Yes on P

Despite the Nope's insistence that massive expansion is not planned, Pac Coast Biz Times gets it straight from the horses mouth. http://www.pacbiztimes.com/2014/01/10...
On Geology Experts Confirm Fracking Risks

Still waiting for Natty-G to contradict the Pacific Coast Business Times article which speaks of SME's touting their potential to drill 7700 wells in Santa Barbara. County. PacCoastBizTimes is a major proponent of the oil industry. I dare Natty-G to dispute their reporting.

If P is defeated, Sheriff Thomas can get his big bonus from Chevron for successfully spreading misinformation. Then he can go back to collecting his taxpayer funded $202,000 /year pension that we all pay for.

Skinner, wipe that Skoal juice off your chin and stop with the bull sheet . You NoPers will frack the hell out of this place as soon as you can bribe three supervisors to approve it. Los Padres Forest has areas that fracking will pay and you fools will try every trick in the book to alter the balance of our board of supervisors to achieve your greedy goals. Look no further than the fracking operations in our neighboring Sespe Wilderness to prove my point. Stop the bs'ing.

Funny how the Nopes don't like to talk much about the environmental contamination records of their sugar daddies .
