BAAQMD Do Your Job
Our Regulatory Agencies are letting us down bigtime​.​

California is the third largest oil refining state in the US. The Bay Area​'​s five refineries process 778,000 barrels of oil per day! Refineries produce a wide variety of pollutants, including greenhouse gasses that cause climate change and toxic chemicals that sicken the people living near the refineries.

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District's job is "To protect and improve public health, air quality, and the global climate."
So how​'​s that going? Not so well lately.

Despite some promising resolutions from the District elected officials to cut back on emissions, especially greenhouse gasses, the BAAQMD continues to permit more refinery projects behind the backs of the local and regional communities.

Come and hear from members of the Sunflower Alliance and 350.org about the latest proposal to allow
crude-by-rail, aka "bomb trains" to come through Oakland, and what you can do about it.

Occupy Forum is an opportunity for open and respectful dialogue
on all sides of these critically important issues!
