signed No Bay Area Tar Sands Petition 2013-04-29 13:41:35 -0700

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

1,463 signatures

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.

Peaceful, angry, well-organized. I had to go alone… no one seemed to share my passion. I tried to explain it like this: “Keystone XL is the Alamo for Climate Change.”

Can’t wait to see the big group photo… but I’m a little let down we didn’t form a giant “350” … :)

signed Beyond the Pump Petition 2012-11-16 15:43:32 -0800

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.
