Tell Governor Brown to ban fracking in California!

1,423 signatures
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 No Bay Area Tar Sands Petition 2015-04-22 14:27:17 -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

1,464 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.

Air District vote on Refinery GHG Emissions cap June 21

An historic vote on air pollution limits that could “cap” Bay Area oil refinery emissions to prevent a huge pollution increase is scheduled for June 21st.  Our health and climate are at stake.

A last-minute exemption could undermine this urgently needed protection by allowing increased emissions from unused project permits for “dirty” oil expansion projects.

We must oppose this exemption.  Oil companies do not own our air.  Oil companies do not own our lungs.  They have no right to pollute us.  Our air officials must be reminded of this fundamental fact.

Our locally elected officials plan to vote on the caps for our health and climate—or the exemption for increasing refinery air pollution—at this public hearing of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District Board of Directors

Gas Pump Information Labels Comes to TED Talks!

Robert Shirkey, Executive Director at OurHorizon.org in Toronto Canada just recently did a TED talk on Canada's gas pump campaign. It is a very informative and well spoken speech about the merits of implementing a consumer-oriented label at the point of purchase:
