2015년 5월 19일, 샌타바버라 군의 원유 수송관이 파괴되어 캘리포니아 해변이 530,000리터의 기름으로 뒤덮였습니다. 파타고니아는 이번 사태 해결을 위해 캘리포니아 주 의회에 상정된 4개의 법안을 지지합니다. 법안 3개는 2015년 10월 8일에 통과되었습니다. 파타고니아는 우리의 소중한 바다가 기름으로 뒤덮이지 않도록 함께 싸우고 있습니다.
The mission of the #CrudeAwakening is to protect our coast from future oil spills. The California legislature has already taken three critical steps towards achieving that goal, thanks in part to your work. A trio of important bills (SB414, AB864 and SB295) that will improve pipeline safety related to offshore oil and gas production and enhance our ability to respond to oil spills have passed the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
Now, they’re on their way for a full floor vote?the last step before going to Gov. Brown’s desk to become law. While a fourth bill (SB788) that would have stopped new oil drilling along our coast was unfortunately killed in committee, we’re excited to keep pushing the remaining three bills forward to become law
But we need your continued help. Take action now and voice your support for safer energy production along our fragile coastline. Please encourage your friends to do the same.
Our friends at The Environmental Defense Center and Santa Barbara Channelkeeper are leading the way locally, and Surfrider Foundation is working statewide and nationally on this important issue. We support their efforts.
