Thousands Protest Chevron Oil Refinery in Richmond, California

I know what Chevron should do.  Shut the refinery down.  The protesters all got there in cars fueled with CA formulated gas that came out of their refinery. Why is it people in CA love to bite the hand that feeds them?

From The Nation:

In the years since, RPA has strived to hold Chevron accountable on air quality, safety and other issues—such as back taxes owed to the city. On Friday, the city filed a lawsuit against Chevron over last year’s refinery fire: NBC reports the legal complaint accuses the company of “lax oversight and corporate indifference to necessary safety inspection and repairs.” The mayor and local activists have also opposed California’s cap-and-trade regulations (breaking ranks with some environmental groups), arguing for a mandate that would force Chevron to reduce its greenhouse-gas emissions locally.

What a pathetically slanted article.
