Dear Supporter,

Last week, over 40,000 climate activists gathered in Washington, DC for the largest climate rally in U.S. history to demand President Obama keep his promise about taking serious action on climate change and reject the Keystone XL pipeline.

No doubt the Keystone XL pipeline is a fuse for a carbon bomb in the Alberta tar sands, and it has got to be stopped. But in California, there is a much quieter threat lurking: oil fracking. Barrel for barrel, California oil fields produce as much carbon dioxide as the tar sands do.

Like the devastating extraction of the tar sands, fracking for natural gas on the East Coast has generated lots of attention in film, by celebrities, and the good work of activists. The fracking boom in California, however, is being kept very quiet. But that is about to change.

Along with our partners, Global Exchange’s Community Rights Program is embarking on a 7-day speaking tour from April 15-22. The tour will visit impacted California communities from San Francisco to San Diego and expose the reality of fracking in the state. We'll engage community members in the movement to oppose and stop fracking.

If you live in California, we hope you’ll join us on one of the tour stops.

It's time to stop fracking and really get serious about climate change.
