Protect the Pinnacles from Extreme Oil on Sept. 21
Join the Center for Biological Diversity, 350.org, San Benito Rising and others on Sept. 21 for a national day of action called Draw the Line.
We'll meet at 9:30 a.m. at the east entrance to Pinnacles National Park campground. We'll march at 10 a.m. with a rally to follow. We're coming together to speak out against extreme fossil fuel development, including fracking of the Monterey Shale and plans to allow 15 new "steam injection" oil wells less than 10 miles from this incredible national park. These wells would further imperil endangered California condors and put drinking and irrigation water at risk.
We're joining forces across the country to tell President Obama and other elected officials that the time has come to address climate change and protect our communities and public lands from extreme fossil fuel development. These new wells in California, as well as projects like the Keystone XL pipeline, take us in the wrong direction.
That is unacceptable – it's time to draw the line on risky oil development near our national treasures.
