Communities for a Better Environment v. Chevron Lawsuit Upsets Bay Area

Earlier this month, a group called Communities for a Better Environment filed suit against Chevron's attempt to upgrade its Richmond Refinery because they claim the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was not well done, but judging by the comments of readers of SFGate, the SF Chronicle website, the timing of the lawsuit could not have been worse.  

The problem: high gas prices.  The problem's turned what would normally be knee-jerk opponents into reasoned observers.  

Take a look:

What morons! We need to give Chevron a free pass to upgrade to lower gas a little more. We need to ship these enviornuts to China now!

Don't complain about high gas prices. Guess what happens when Chevron and others can't expand production or god forbid need to totally relocate a refinery. As the saying goes, company's don't pay higher prices, consumers do.

Don't you guys get it. If we don't let them rerfine here they will have to refine somewhere else farther away. That will mean lower prices for us at the pump. They farther you travel from the bay area the CHEAPER THE PRICES ARE. Make them go away OR GIVE US CHAEPER rates at the pump.

Lower quality oil means more pollution to refine out. More gasoline means continued dependence means higher prices in the long haul, and accelerated climate change to boot. Get it? I hope "people do."

We don't need no stinkin' gas. Vote Obama for less stinkin' gas.

Regardless of planning and testing, this group will oppose a refinery even if it produces rainbows and puppies as an secondary product. Just keep thinking that the Obamessiah will solve everything.

I have to say that one does not have to be a Republican to think the Chevron plan works for Richmond!
