signed No Bay Area Tar Sands Petition via 2013-07-29 07:45:20 -0700
I stand for the health and well being of our planet ,ecosystems and future generations and expect our elected leaders to work towards the development of rational life supporting renewable energy policies. We have the science and knowledge and now only need the will to make the shift away from dirty oil energy. The planet IS warming up and we cannot continue on this suicidal path.

Dust bowls due to drought in the southwest, hotter climate in Europe, Dead fish washing up on shores in the millions, fire storms in Colorado, Low Missippi River, Flooding around the world and in the US. Time to take our heads out of the Sand and our eyes off the $$$ signs and begin to take constructive action.

It begins here on our local city levels where city ordinances can prohibit the tar sands processing and transport of any kind in our communities.

Please do your part as our elected officials

No Tar Sands in the Bay Area

Tar Sands are a bad idea.  We can make sure that the Bay Area is not part of this problem. and ensure that area refineries don't process any materials from tar sands mining operations. Help us convince the cities of Richmond and Martinez to prohibit the dirty, destructive and climate-disruptive tar sands within their city limits.

Petition

We request that the city councils of Richmond, Hercules, Benicia and Martinez pass city ordinances to prohibit the transport, processing and refining within city limits of any materials obtained or derived from tar sands of any source. We request that all other city councils in the Bay Area pass resolutions in support of these ordinances.
