In Case You Missed It: San Jose Mercury News editorial — Fracking limits should be based on science not ballots

November 13, 2014

For the second time within a month, the San Jose Mercury News editorial board has voiced its opposition to local energy bans and reaffirmed its support for letting science guide policy decisions for energy production.

“In the wake of ballot fights this fall and more expected, Californians need reassurance that the state is scientifically evaluating the safety and environmental impact of hydraulic fracturing and will increase its already strictest-in-the-nation regulations if needed when the facts are clear.”

Previously, the Mercury News said:

“A practice tied to national energy supplies should not be regulated county by county.”
