6 YEARS OF KEEPING THE OIL IN THE GROUND
Despite the City of Carson putting out the welcome mat for oil drilling, and well stimulation including fracking we are celebrating 6 years of keeping the oil in the ground here in Carson California. To celebrate this momentous accomplishment we are hosting a movie watch party in our home. Space is limited so we’re asking everyone to help us in making this the biggest celebration possible by hosting your own watch party, invite your friends and family to join in watching Josh Fox’s new film, HOW TO LET GO OF THE WORLD AND LOVE ALL THINGS CLIMATE CAN’T CHANGE.
People from around Southern California came together to go against big oil, and have kept an estimated $4 billion of oil in the ground for 6 years. Organizations like Food & Water Watch, National Nurses United, Earth Justice, Sierra Club, Communities for a Better Environment, South Bay 350 Climate Action Group, Carson Connected, Carson Collation Group, and countless individuals spoke up and in doing so have kept new drilling to a minimum.
On September 16, and November 5, 2010 the Department of Conservation Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources granted Occidental Petroleum the right to drill 2 exploratory wells with the expectation of drilling 200 wells. Despite the City of Carson putting out the welcome mat for oil drilling, and well stimulation, the people of Southern California have stopped the drilling of 198 wells, and On September 1, 2015 DOM-002 the well that was causing a series of earthquakes was shut down, all that remains is 1.
The Newport/Inglewood fault has always been the hill formation that runs from Newport Beach through Inglewood it runs through the North East corner of Carson.
