CFROG is a group of local Ventura County residents working with elected officials, informed citizens and industry leaders to ensure effective oversight of oil and gas operations in Ventura County.
They demand a full environmental review for new and reworked wells and well stimulation regulations that protect our air, water and neighborhoods from industrial blight.
Ventura County is woefully unprepared to manage a proliferation of fracking and other enhanced recovery techniques anticipated to tap into the Monterey/Santos Shale Deposit. Can they get that oil responsibly without causing great environmental damage? It’s time to act.
We hope you will support CFROG in ensuring Ventura County’s water and air are protected. CFROG is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

The Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL), also known as Rocketdyne, is a former nuclear and rocket engine testing facility that is contaminated with radiological and chemical pollutants. The 2,850 acre site is near Simi Valley, Chatsworth, Canoga Park, Woodland Hills, West Hills, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, Oak Park, Calabasas, and Thousand Oaks.
CLICK HERE for Video highlights from the February 5, 2014 meeting of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory Work Group. The evening began with a brief video about the 1959 partial nuclear meltdown at SSFL and was followed by presentations about other accidents and releases at the site, the EPA survey of radioactive contamination in Area IV, the health effects of exposure to radiation, the federal program to compensate ill workers, the cleanup agreements, agency commitments to those agreements, the dismantlement and disposal of contaminated buildings, and Q & A.
Dr. Bob Dodge, a board member of Physicians for Social Responsibility-Los Angeles, presented on radiation and health, drew attention to studies by the UCLA School of Public Health and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry that found increased rates for certain cancers with proximity to SSFL.

America’s political system is one of open bribery. Corporations make “contributions” and their will is enforced; from fracking contamination to pipeline spills, the Transpacific Partnership, Genetic Modification of our foods including human DNA in some cases, customers being robbed by banks via fraud and fees with no penalty to the banks or bankers. Corporate lackeys are appointed to high positions in the FDA, FCC and Supreme Court. Organizations that serve “the common good” such as Social Security, Disability, SNAP and the EPA are ravaged for money to build bombs that we drop on weddings and serve corporate profits in the Military Industrial complex.
