Beyond the Pump

Put global warming warning labels on gas pumps! The warning can include a link to the local Climate Action website. This is an awareness-raising action. Cigarettes have warning labels, why not gas pumps? Ask Bay Area City Councils to pass a City Ordinance to put warning labels on Bay Area gas pumps. For example:

Petition

To the Bay Area Local Governments: 

We urge our city council to require warning labels on gas pumps to:

  1. Warn consumers that burning gasoline is causing global warming,
  2. Inform people that our city has a Climate Action Plan to reduce CO2 in general and gasoline use in particular.

Gasoline is a major contributor to Benzene being in our daily environment which can cause cancer and other life threatening diseases. Breathing air should not make you sick. Oil refineries emitt Benzene in the oil refining process. It is crucial to shut down the oil refineries to save our world and our lives.

This is REALLY needed. It’s not clear to me that people see the connection between their driving and climate change. We all have the responsibility to change what we are doing so that future generations have a planet! I have dumped my car and do not drive anymore, nor do I travel by jet. Others can at least do their utmost to drive less!!

Not only CO2 but people handling the pumps face a danger. This is such a great idea to have a decal on the pumps!
