Last week Chevron spilled 600 gallons of oil into our Bay. This disaster triggered health warnings across the region, and clean up will take weeks and will never fully be cleaned. This tragedy is a horrible vindication of our work as climate activists, but continues to show the importance of our work addressing how fossil fuels are killing us, humans and animals alike, in so many ways.As we move into the end of our 46 Days of Action campaign we turn to a hopeful vision of our future – one where we eliminate carbon pollution (YES we can do it!) and have vibrant communities with civic engagement. Together we can choose a future full of beauty; please co-create this future by taking the actions listed below.
