Fracking Front and Center in State of State Demonstration

Demonstrators with several different groups protested outside the Capitol during the State of the State speech.  

They want the governor to stand up against fracking for oil in California.

The demonstrators insist the water intensive practice of forcing chemicals into rock formations to extract oil releases large amounts of methane in the atmosphere and contanminates ground water supplies.

They also criticize state officials, who they claim have opened the door to more fracking with rules recently proposed.
