West Coast Oil Invasion

Plans underway by the multinational oil conglomerates see Los Angeles as the target for shipping, processing, storage, and exportation of extreme fossil fuels, centered on the five major oil refineries located in the LA Harbor Area, Long Beach, Carson, Torrance, and El Segundo Areas. Extreme crude oils headed our way include Canadian tar sands, North Dakota Bakken shale oil, and crude oil imported from the Amazon basin and Africa. These refineries put our air, water and neighborhoods at great risk.
