Stand Up to Big Oil at the Air District

At last some success!  The Bay Area Air Quality Management District Board at their Nov 30 meeting has agreed to include evaluation of the Community-Worker Proposal to cap refinery emissions by our ally Communities for a Better Environment (CBE).  District Staff have been proposing their own industry friendly proposal which supports refineries “right to emit” and could allow increasing tar sands crude-by rail rolling into the Bay Area.  A positive outcome is by no means guaranteed.  The next few months, starting at the Dec.16 hearing, will be our strongest opportunity to put people-pressure on the Board to insure that toxic emissions and greenhouse gasses from Bay Area refineries never again exceed present levels.  

Please plan on attending the Dec 16 hearing if you possibly can.  For more background check our ally Sunflower Alliance’s website  http://www.sunflower-alliance.org/showdown_at_the_air_district  and Communities for Better Environment's Oil and our Air Officials Fact Sheet
