Gas Wells Do Not Belong Near Schools- or Anywhere

From 350.org:

On Friday, we joined The Center on Race, Poverty & the Environment for a tour of fracking sites in California's Central Valley. This is an elementary school in ...Shafter, CA that is within sight of seven fracking wells -- and where about one in three kids suffers from asthma. The Central Valley has about the worst air quality in the nation, and climate change is making it worse.
It was sobering to witness how deeply fossil fuel extraction has impacted communities like Shafter, and it was inspiring to meet community members who are responding with resilience and determination. You can see more pictures from our trip here: http://on.fb.me/1nfptCW
