Shut down the Porter Ranch gas leak NOW!
Governor Jerry Brown just declared a state of emergency for the massive gas leak in Porter Ranch, a neighborhood of Los Angeles, but his executive order falls short of shutting down the leak.
Meanwhile, this gas leak is spiraling out of control! Every passing day, 1,200 TONS OF METHANE GAS -- a greenhouse gas that is seventy times more potent than carbon dioxide -- spews out of the well near Porter Ranch. Local residents are experiencing nosebleeds, migraines, and dizziness. Thousands have been displaced, and two schools were shut down.
The South Coast Air Quality Management District -- a local agency that regulates air pollution -- has the authority to shut down the Aliso Canyon Storage Facility responsible for the leak. And we need to raise our voices loud and clear to make sure they #ShutItALLDown NOW!
SIGN THE PETITION to tell the South Coast Air Quality Management District:
"I urge you to immediately shut down the Aliso Canyon Storage Facility for operating out of compliance!"
