For the last several years, the Bay Area has been part of an international movement to stop the expansion of the tar sands. We’ve supported efforts led by Indigenous peoples across North America against Keystone XL, Line 3, Energy East, and Kinder Morgan. All of these projects would dramatically increase the amount of dirty oil extracted, transported, and burned around the world. These tar sands projects impact all of us — and now it’s time to fight against this expansion in our own backyard.
2017 was a year of drought and fires for the Bay Area and much of California. Already, we’re seeing the real impacts that climate change creates for our communities — from burned homes, losss of agricultural land, job loss, and mass displacement in an area where we’re already facing extremely high cost of living.
If we’re going to truly address this climate crisis, we must demand that our local decision makers reject all new oil, gas, and coal projects, and move rapidly to a just and equitable 100% renewable energy future.
