News: Late Monday San Luis Obispo County proposed to DENY Phillips 66 permits to deliver by oil train and refine tar sands oil!
• SLO County’s brave stand comes just after its final EIR admits our communities were correct that this is a TAR SANDS PROJECT–the project is as bad as its EIR finds, and worse due to tar sands refining impacts.
• SLO County’s stand PROTECTS THE BAY AREA FROM OIL TRAINS AND RODEO REFINERY EMISSIONS!
• Bay Area air officials should publicly support SLO County’s proposal to deny this project that threatens air quality here too, and we await their announcement—the BAAQMD should have stood by us when we first learned of Big Oil’s cover-up of its oil switch!
NOW, AT A MINIMUM, OUR AIR DISTRICT SHOULD STAND PUBLICLY FOR ITS SISTER AGENCY’S CORRECT PROPOSAL.
