Chevron and big oil are a driving force behind wars for oil and global warming. Over a million gallons a month of occupied Iraq ’s oil is processed at Chevron Richmond Refinery. Now Chevron threatens the Bay Area with massive additional toxic pollution from expansion of it’s Richmond oil refinery to refine dirty crude oil - which is being fought by community and antiwar groups.

Juhasz is writing a new book, The Tyranny of Oil: the World’s Most Powerful Industry, and What We Must Do to Stop It (HarperCollins Publishers, September 2008).



JESSICA TOVAR

Together with community groups from Richmond , she is fighting Chevrons new plans to expand it’s Richmond Refinery to process dirty low quality crude oil, which both threatens Richmond and the Bay Area with massive toxic pollution and goes against efforts to move towards green energy and reduce greenhouse emissions. Jessica has helped organize and train communities in urban, rural and indigenous communities throughout the Southwest.
