Local environmentalists tell feds, ‘Don’t frack our future,’ at Camarillo protest

The word “frack”—a shorthand phrase for hydraulic fracturing—lends itself well to puns on picket signs.

Opponents of the controversial oil extraction process have no problem taking advantage of this, as they did last week at a protest outside the Pacific office for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). More than 80 people demonstrated at the Camarillo office, demanding the agency deny an oil company’s application to frack in federal waters in the Santa Barbara Channel.
