Letter to the Editor: ‘Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is not used anywhere in Los Angeles County’
By Californians for Energy Independence
Published October 2, 2018

Dear Editor,

The September 20 article by Jennifer Bihm contains a significant inaccuracy in the headline and misleading statements in the article itself. The headline states that poor communities in Los Angeles “experience most fracking.” The fact is that hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is not used anywhere in Los Angeles County. The term refers to a specific method of oil extraction which is not employed by any oil producers in the Los Angeles region. While oil production remains an important part of LA’s economy, the energy that is produced here is done under the strictest health, environmental and safety regulations in the world.

Sincerely,

Californians for Energy Independence
