Not In My Backyard
Bechtel-Shell say that Vallejo should host their LNG facility and gas plant in order to help with California's alleged energy crisis. We are told we are selfish NIMBYs (Not In My Back Yard) because we don't want their project in our community. Why is it selfish to be concerned about our health, safety, property and families? Vallejo is already surrounded by oil refineries and power plants in Rodeo, Martinez, Richmond and Benicia and has the highest asthma rate in the state of California. Our community shouldn't have to shoulder any more of the burden to provide California's energy needs.
Other Communities Have Said “No” to LNG!
Other communities have said “no” to these kinds of plants in their front yards, and have even had the support of their local and national elected officials…
Radio Island, North Carolina
Howe Sound, British Columbia
Liberty Township, Ohio
An additional quote that VallejoCPR just received via email:
"We here in Liberty Township won our battle! SO IT CAN BE DONE. Just keep the pressure on EVERYONE you can...nice people get these kind of plants! Let us know if we can help."
