Re: “Yes on G

Mr. Timewell, you are half correct in your Myth/Fact lineup, but unfortunately half the truth is a whole lie... I'll help you get the other half.

1) Measure G doesn't immediately shut down the oil field; HOWEVER, oil fields naturally decline. Due to this, within a very short time frame it will likely be uneconomic to produce from the Arroyo Grande oil field. As a result, the oil field would be then shut down. Why? Because of Measure G.

2) Counties that successfully banned fracking have no fracking. The courts in Measure Z did not uphold fracking, they declined to rule on it because there is NO FRACKING IN THAT COUNTY. What they did rule on was that the rest of Measure Z was not legal. The county did not pursue further legal action because the costs were too high.

3) Gas prices - no disagreement. The question I have is WHO CARES WHERE THEY SELL THE OIL? It's the tax revenue that matters. If everything produced in SLO county should stay in SLO county, your agriculture argument goes out the window. Nobody is dictating where you sell your wine. Why should you get to dictate where they sell their oil?

Questions for you:
What makes drilling at Arroyo Grande extreme?
What is the technical explanation that supports that there will be fracking in the county?
If there is an answer to the previous question, why aren't companies fracking now?
If you want more drinking water, why not limit wine production, as it takes an estimated 375 gallons of water to make 1 gallon of wine? Why single out one industry?

On the article you posted:
Did you notice that the study areas are NOT IN CALIFORNIA? That's because there is very little fracking CA, because it's not needed...

Enjoy your low heating bill this winter.
