While there is no immediate local threat, activists view county ban as part of wide likely strategy leading to statewide prohibition.

Alameda may soon become the 5th county in Ca. to ban fracking and other extreme oil and gas extraction measures, according to a proposed whole new ordinance that the board of supervisors is set to vote on at its Jul nineteen meeting.

The count would join the likes of conservative Butte County, where 72 percent voted yes on last month’s ballot measure to also ban fracking. Butte joined San Benito, Santa Cruz, and Mendocino as no-fracking counties.

It was rather naive to think this, she reflected.

Article length: About 720 words.
