First Californian county bans fracking.

Nation of Change: “Santa Cruz County in California triumphed Tuesday to become the state’s first county to ban fracking. The county’s board of supervisors voted 5-0 to prohibit fracking, as well as gas and oil development within its boundaries.”

Tuesday’s vote makes that decision permanent.”
