Next time you read an ad or mailer or talk to someone about the proposed oil drilling project in Hermosa Beach, ask yourself, is that door-to-door canvasser paid by the oil company or a volunteer concerned about people’s health and safety? Is that ad funded by E&B or by donations from concerned citizens? Is that E&B supporter a large mineral rights owner or someone who was paid by the oil company in some way?
E&B has been courting mineral rights owners in closed, invite-only meetings, playing down safety concerns, inflating revenues to schools and the city, donating to local organizations and events and placing ads that are misleading or even have false information.
Are you going to trust an oil company from Bakersfield that stands to make more than $1 billion in revenue or people who just want to keep their families, friends and neighbors healthy and safe?
Don’t take my word for it, just Google “oil drilling health and safety.” Read the Environmental Impact Report on the city’s website. It states there are nine significant and unavoidable negative impacts.
Vote no on oil on March 3.
