Interactive Fracking and Natural Gas Map

I was watching the second Gasland on HBO, and around the same time received an email from Patagonia (one of my favorite sportswear stores) about this website that let’s you enter your zip code or city and it will give you a map of the the fracking zones in your area. For those of you in the Los Angeles area, they mention in the documentary that there is fracking in Baldwin Hills, so not even major cities prone to earthquakes are exempt from this dangerous practices that contaminates the water, air and causes earthquakes. Smart right?

Since I started my health journey, we buy water from Smart and Final because I didn’t trust the tap water. Paranoid maybe, until proven right. Hopefully one day soon, I will be able to afford a high end water filter. Hint, hint, family and friends this is going on my wedding registry.

Here is a map I made of LA:
