More Pertinent Info
Dear LNG Task Force member,
The time is now! Those pushing risky LNG tankers and terminals off the coast and new high-pressure gas pipelines up to the doors of Ventura County’s homes and schools want you to be discouraged. They want you to think this is a done deal. They think we will stop tabling, knocking on doors and making phone calls. They are wrong on all counts.
And to show them, your neighbors, friends and fellow LNG Task Force members are out there working to make sure that all of Ventura County is safe. They are meeting new people and telling them that there is a better way. We do not need more dangerous, polluting, foreign, fossil fuels to generate California’s energy. We can have affordable, clean, safe and renewable energy, not twenty years from now, but today! The time is now!
Please join us and do your part! As we count down the days to our big HANDS ALONG THE PIPLEINE event on Saturday, May 14th, we need your help to get the word out! We can make a difference for Ventura County’s future. We can help ensure that the children have clean air and safe neighborhoods. And we can help California to make smart choices for energy generation. But we need your help and truly the time is now!
What you can do: Look for details below.
1. Neighborhood walk
It’s easy, only takes a couple of hours and can really make a difference. Most people do not even know that LNG is threatening their homes and by telling them about HANDS ALONG THE PIPLEINE, you are providing them a valuable service. Put on comfortable shoes and join the team at 10:00AM on Saturday, April 30th near the Pacifica High School ( turn on Entrada – off Gonzales Rd/ opposite Pacifica High School – and then take a right on Roble St) or call Bill and Gloria at 805-488-0422 for better directions.
2. Table to help stop LNG
This weekend we have a great team tabling at the Channel Islands Farmers Market. They will be getting petitions signed and passing out flyers for HANDS ALONG THE PIPELINE. Now, we need help in Ventura. Our “master tabler” Karine wants to table at the Ventura Marina and she needs your help. Call Karine at 917-846-4719. She is very flexible with time and will try to meet you for whatever time you have free.
3. Phone with us
Last week we made calls for just a couple of hours as a team, and we were able to confirm 51 new people for HANDS ALONG THE PIPELINE. These are all easy calls to supportive people; they all just need a reminder because everyone is busy. Join us Monday and bring your cell phone. We will have pizza, make calls from 6PM to 8:15PM and turn people out for HANDS ALONG THE PIPELINE. We will meet at the rec. hall behind Bill and Gloria’s home (250 East Pleasant Valley Road. There is parking one block away at the TresSierra’s Super Market on the corner) of Saviers Road and Pleasant Valley. Send me an email or call Bill and Gloria and 805- 488-0422 to confirm you can make it.
4. Sierra Club Los Padres Chapter LNG Task Force Monthly Meeting
A lot has happened since last month. Join us on Wednesday, May 4th from 6:30PM to 8:00PM at the Oxnard Public Library (251 S A St) to learn more about HANDS ALONG THE PIPELINE, to hear how we did in Sacramento last week and to learn what you can do to help protect Ventura County’s schools, homes and environment from dangerous LNG.
5. Join the Got Asthma? Stop LNG team on Saturday, May 7th
On Saturday morning, May 7th, one week before HANDS ALONG THE PIPELINE, The Mayor of Hueneme, Murray Rosenbluth and City Council Member Maricela Morales have organized a team entitled “Got asthma? Stop LNG” that will be walking around the Ventura Harbor for the American Lung Association. This is a great opportunity to raise awareness of LNG, hand out flyers for HANDS ALONG THE PIPELINE, and make a difference for Ventura County. For more information on getting involved with the Got Asthma? Stop LNG team, you can visit this website: http://www.mrsnv.com/evt/e01/team.jsp?id=622&tid=130
6. RSVP for HANDS ALONG THE PIPELINE
The event is Saturday, May 14th from 10:00AM until around noon in front of the Pacifica High School (600 E Gonzales Rd., Oxnard). We will have speakers, refreshments and an opportunity to send a creative and memorable message to Governor Schwarzenegger. Please RSVP ASAP! Send me an email with your full name and phone number or call Ariana at 805- 683-7539. This is your best opportunity to show the media and decision makers that LNG is B-A-D for Ventura County.
7. Write a letter to the editor
Write to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com This is an important time to make sure our message is out there. There is a lot of pressure from other states, big corporations and foreign governments to bring LNG through your communities. If you haven’t had a letter published in the last 30 days, now is the time. Make sure you add your name, address and phone number (although only your name and city will be published) and don’t worry about writing the perfect letter, just write a letter.
