How many more oil spills will we have to see?

Action: Save Our Oceans

May 29, 2015   Action Alert ID# 227

 

It's the worst kind of déjà vu: On May 19 yet another major oil spill had cleanup crews fanned out along Santa Barbara's Refugio State Beach, stained black by tens of thousands of gallons of crude oil. The damage done to the homes of wildlife like pelicans, sea otters and humpback whales is heartbreaking.

Since 1986 more than 600 oil and gas pipeline leaks, spills and other incidents in the Golden State have caused at least $769 million in damages, 200 injuries and almost 50 deaths. We will never be safe from tragedies like these until we end fossil fuel development altogether.

Yet Gov. Brown, despite having declared a state of emergency in response to the most recent Santa Barbara spill, continues to support an expansion of fracking and other dangerous oil drilling in our state, deepening the climate crisis and increasing the chances of yet another catastrophe.
