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

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.

There are no safeguards for transport of tar sands or for other hazardous materials on the tracks. We should not permit these materials or any materials derived from tar sands to be transported or stored in our communities or anywhere near us.

Stop the feed of destructive tar sands now or it will spread across the country.
