Rodeo 1/21

Phillips 66 wants to do a massive "Propane Expansion project, and the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is grossly inadequate.
The appeal in front of the Board of Supervisors for the Rodeo 66 refinery project will be:
 Tuesday, January 21st at 1:00 PM at 651 Pine Street in Martinez.
Please come  and support our rag tag cluster of advocates.  You don't have to speak (you can fill out a  card and say that you are against the EIR without having to speak.)  If you choose to speak, and want some ideas, here are four topics:
  • Talk about  the cumulative impact of the project along with the other refinery expansions in the Bay Area
  • You can address the fact that it omits mention of the Wes Pac in regards to the Rodeo expansion (feel free to wave Attorney General Kamilla Harris's letter as visual prop, as SHE manages to address the connection!)
  • You can address the environmental justice issue:  the Richmond and Rodeo refineries are some of the oldest refineries in the nation....when they were built they had nothing around them.  Over the past century, "life happened" and housing got closer and closer.  In Rodeo's case the closest neighborhood, is a housing project filled with people who will be in harms way...and have no where to go.
  • The EIR is grossly incomplete and needs to go back to the drawing board.
For more information about the deficiencies of the EIR this blog has PDFs of the summary of the issues.
