Davisites will car-pool to anti-fracking event in Sacramento

From page A4 | March 12, 2014 |

Yolo MoveOn invites all to attend the Don’t Frack California rally in Sacramento on Saturday, March 15, from noon to 2:30 p.m. on the lawn of the state Capitol.
Fracking — hydraulic fracturing — requires the use of vast amounts of water mixed with toxic chemicals to break up shale and release oil. This process exacerbates climate change by releasing methane gas, and it depletes water resources in a time of severe drought.
“Join your voice with the thousands of others coming from all over California to stand strong on this issue, which is supported by MoveOn, 350.org, Food and Water Watch, Sierra Club, Credo and many other concerned organizations,” a news release said.
Participants will car-pool from Davis. They’ll meet at 11:15 a.m. in the parking lot of the Grocery Outlet/Dollar Store, 1800 E. Eighth St. Contact Frances at 530-848-2696 or Frances_brk@yahoo.com to offer to drive or reserve a ride.

    That is an excellent question. It's a short and easy ride over the Causeway. I do this ride every week. A couple dozen Davis people who work in Sacto do it every day. An equal number of Sac residents who work in Davis bike back and forth, also. Perhaps the answer to your question is that the car-poolers are unwilling to live up to the standard they are demanding other people to live up to? Or maybe the cars they will be car-pooling in are pedal-powered. I have noticed that group dressed up in Flintstones' outfits. So the latter is a possible explanation.

    For ML and R.Rifkin....some of the protestors are and have been working for the betterment of mankind in general and CA. in particular, for most of their adult lives. And some LIKE ME, for instance, have health issues which would prohibit biking for any length of time. SOOOOOoooooo, if you can't be part of the solution to the many negative issues faced by this state and this world.....do try to be NOT part of the problem.

    "some LIKE ME, for instance, have health issues which would prohibit biking for any length of time." ............. So what you are saying is that you depend on fossil fuels, due to your insalubrity, but you don't want other people to have fossil fuels? Do I have that right?
