6. There's very little chance of any permits being issued for fracking near the San Andreas itself.
Even our politicians aren't stupid enough to allow that one. And if they were, any attempt to do so would be immediately buried in CEQA suits. And no judge, anywhere in this state, would shoot down a CEQA suit trying to stop fracking near the fault.
That's part of what makes CEQA such a great law here in California. If the government refuses to get involved and protect our environment, CEQA empowers the citizenry to force their hand.
