signed Ban fracking in California! 2014-05-12 12:25:51 -0700
Fracking is NOT a wise use of limited water resources, and the risks of contamination of soil and ground water are too great, the risks of increased number and severity of earthquakes are too great – Fracking and California DON’T MIX!

Tell Governor Brown to ban fracking in California!

Sign our petition asking Governor Brown to lead efforts to prevent the climate change catastrophe of expanded drilling for dirty oil in California.

Governor Jerry Brown:

We recognize your strong commitment to protecting our climate and call on you to ban fracking in California.  Fracking accelerates climate disruption.  Fracking and the use of fracked oil will produce a huge increase in greenhouse gas emissions, virtually wiping out progress made by California toward emissions reduction.  I want California to move forward to clean, renewable energy and leave dirty shale oil in the ground.  New York, New Jersey and Vermont have already enacted bans or moratoriums on fracking.  California has always been the leader in fighting climate disruption.  We call on you to provide that leadership now and ban fracking to ensure our children and theirs will have a habitable earth to live on.


signed Beyond the Pump Petition 2014-05-12 12:18:14 -0700
I just visited the Bay Area, completely via public transit – trains, ferry, bus – and ride sharing. These warnings are a step toward this sort of awareness, of the need to do things differently. I plan to start a similar campaign to have warning labels on gas pumps in cities near me.

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:

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.
