Re: “Can we speak honestly about oil?

More from the same article. This is really scary. "What's in your Water"

Re: “Can we speak honestly about oil?

"It's not that injection wells used to produce oil are any more or any less of a threat to public safety or the environment than fracking. Indeed, there is significant overlap between the chemicals used in fracking and those used in injection operations like cyclic steamingsome of which are extremely toxic. "They're basically using the same chemicals," says Seth Shonkoff, the executive director of PSE Healthy Energy, an energy science and policy institute in Oakland, California, and visiting scholar at the University of CaliforniaBerkeley. Dozens of chemicals used in both well stimulation and more routine operations, such as well drilling or maintenance, have been deemed harmful to human health by the EPA and other government agencies."

Can you imagine sitting at our favorite outdoor DOCKSIDE Restaurant on the water and looking at the Morro Bay Rock and seeing and listening to multiple iron horse pumps shrieking at you while a once beautiful white seagull now covered in black tar oil cries out to you? Yes, this can happen here. VOTE YES on Measure G. Protect our GOD GIVEN ENVIRONMENT.
