Activists Win Fracking Battle in Carson, California

GUEST: Alexandra Nagy, an organizer with Food and Water Watch.

A massive drilling project in the town of Carson has been dropped, much to the joy of activists who pressured for years against it. Occidental Petroleum, which was recently renamed California Resources Corp., had a plan to drill 200 new wells, possibly using hydraulic fracturing or fracking, to squeeze oil out of the area. Some of the wells would have been 2 miles deep.

Last year Carson city officials placed a moratorium on drilling but then reversed that ban. Now, it appears as though the company itself is pulling back, and has asked the city to withdraw its application to drill. In a statement released on Monday, California Resources said, it “is no longer practical in the current commodity price environment.”
