we've got signatures,
help us get to 1,000
by November 12, 2013
Imagine hearing a pulse of sound 100,000 times more intense than a jet engine every 15 seconds. This is what PG&E has in store for our vulnerable marine wildlife if the utility is allowed to begin seismic testing off the California coast.
On November 14 in Santa Monica, the California Coastal Commission (CCC) will make its final decision on whether to allow PG&E to begin this dangerous program of blasting nearly continuous high-decibel sound waves across the ocean floor, wreaking havoc on vulnerable wildlife and fisheries.
We know that seismic testing can cause stress and disorientation, ruptured sensory organs, and even death in whales, dolphins, seals, otters, and fish. Coastal communities also have a good reason to fear for their economies as fishermen will be barred from working in waters that are being tested and lucrative fish species could be threatened.
I will personally deliver all signatures added to this petiton by 7am Pacific Time, November 14, 2012 to the hearing:
WHAT: California Coastal Commission Public hearing on PG&E seismic testing project WHEN: Wednesday, November 14, 9:00 a.m. WHERE: Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, East Wing, 1855 Main Street, Santa Monica, CA 90401
Good News....SUCCESS!!! Thank you for taking action and signing the petition to save whales, dolphins, otters and all marine life off the coast of California from PG&E seismic testing! Today the California Coastal Commission unanimously denied granting PG&E a permit to conduct seismic testing in our ocean.
PG&E had hoped to use a research boat to tow 18 air guns that would emit sonic blasts into the ocean every 10 to 20 seconds for several days. The utility had hoped to conduct the study between November and December... and we stopped them!
Thank you for caring!
