Culver City, CA
Culver City citizens want to
hold a symposium on fracking August 4.

Council decided to delay approval on hosting the symposium until PXP’s report on the fracking going on in the Inglewood oil field is available. PXP said they would not be a part of the fracking symposium.

In the article above, Mr. Camarella, a Culver City resident, stated, “This Council has the authority to say, ‘We want the detailed sounding maps underneath our feet so we know what we are dealing with. They have not given those to the City Council. They may have given them to the fire chief. But because of Homeland Security, they are saying, ‘Oh, they may be used to blow the place up.’ I am sure the five City Councilpeople can take an oath they are not going to do that. The Council has to demand that.”
