Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Received this e-mail today from CREDO Action regarding Governor Jerry Brown (D. CA):
Governor Brown is continuing to press for a California oil-fracking boom, putting public health and the climate at risk.

His administration just released a revised draft of his proposed fracking regulations, which still allow a dangerous expansion of fracking in California, despite the opposition of the more than 100,000 Californians who submitted public comments opposing the first plan.

We have an important opportunity to protest these outrageous pro-fracking regulations on Thursday in Long Beach, where the state is holding a public hearing about the regulations. Sign up to attend the hearing and speak out for a ban on fracking.

    What: Fracking hearing in Long Beach
    When: Thursday, July 17, 4 pm
    Where: Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, 300 E. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90802
    Click here to RSVP for the hearing.


There is no safe way to frack. No regulations will prevent this inherently dangerous method of oil extraction from poisoning nearby communities and accelerating climate change.

But instead of being the climate hero he claims to be and banning fracking outright, Governor Brown is hypocritically continuing to encourage the oil industry to drill in our state.

I hope you can make it to the hearing on Thursday. We need to call out this hypocrisy and make it clear that nothing short of an outright ban will truly protect Californians from fracking.

Click here to RSVP for the hearing.


Thank you for fighting fracking.

Zack Malitz, Campaign Manager
CREDO Action from Working Assets
