  • Offshore Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) - Should it be banned?

    The South Ellwood oil field is close to the coast and could contaminate the Santa Barbara beaches for some time without detection. Any fracking fluids injected into wells offshore could travel through natural fractures already in the rocks into the ocean waters. - http://www.beachapedia.org/Fracking#What_About_Fracking_for_Offshore_Wells.3F Approximately half the oil platforms in federal waters in the Santa Barbara Channel discharge all or a portion of their wastewater directly to the ocean, according to a California Coastal Commission document. - http://www.beachapedia.org/Fracking#What_About_Fracking_for_Offshore_Wells.3F Oil saturated the Santa Barbara Channel and washed ashore before the well at Platform A was capped - yet even after the well was capped, oil continued to seep up steadily through fractures in the ocean floor for several years.

  • Does daylight savings time have any purposeful advantage in today's business or cultural world?

    University of California Santa Barbara economists calculated that Indiana’s move to statewide daylight saving time in 2006 led to a 1-percent rise in residential electricity use through additional demand for air conditioning on summer evenings and heating in early spring and late fall mornings.

  • Does there need to be stricter laws for gun control?

    I'm a student at Santa Barbara High School. People with guns may cause some trouble for the society; however, people without guns can make the government stronger and stronger, just look at the situation in China where people are treated brutally and unfairly. "Guns don't kill people, people kill people." I strongly believe that a gun helps.
