Join residents of Porter Ranch, Food and Water Watch, and Californians Against Fracking to demand that Gov. Brown permanently close the natural gas storage facility at Aliso Canyon.
SoCal Gas is rushing to reopen this disastrous facility whose three-and-a-half-month leak of natural gas threatened the community’s health, displaced 15,000 residents, and sent more than 100,000 tons of methane and 8,000 tons of ethane into the atmosphere. Methane is a greenhouse gas many times more powerful than carbon dioxide – and is the main component of natural gas.
The leak at Aliso Canyon raised public awareness of the dangers of natural gas, showing why reliance on natural gas is a false solution and a “bridge fuel” to climate chaos. Several studies have shown that leaks from fracking and other natural-gas operations have caused a big spike in global methane emissions during the last decade.
Instead of reopening Aliso Canyon, we need to put our resources into developing clean energy.
Join the statewide day of action in Sacramento, where we will deliver petitions signed by more than 45,000 people and letters from more than 120 organizations demanding that Governor Brown close Aliso Canyon permanently
Organizers are arranging carpools from the Bay Area and vans from LA.
