1. HYDRAULIC FRACTURING:

Calif.'s proposed moratoriums might not apply to other drilling in Monterey Shale -- activists

A war of words is brewing over hydraulic fracturing and efforts to ban or limit it in California. Activists who believe they've created negative buzz around the oil and gas extraction process also called "fracking" have launched a new battle: persuading the state's Legislature to look at also restricting different drilling techniques. Green groups warn that other oil recovery methods underway are equally risky, including one they fear could rapidly balloon in use. Because those aren't labeled as "hydraulic fracturing," proposed moratoriums and other restrictions might not apply.
