On Measure P: Disappointment

Posted on November 2 at 4:41 p.m.

no incident? um how about 400 oil spills & illegal water disposal in the county- creek was contaminated- reality check only copies pastes this inane thing that anyone living here knows is false- i've spoken with one big rancher who would love to have the oil industry drill on their land- some would not, many in this area do already - it is certainly not a stretch to ask whether this paper's editor in chief is one of those ranchers - to my knowledge they are not but i think the question is important enough to answer in a straight forward manner

natgeo- the more your opine the more you show us how uninformed you are- most of the people I know in NoCo are a Yes on P. Many residents have already experienced the toxic air & water pollution that comes with oil industry drilling- 400 toxic spills or illegal waste water disposals within a few short years & one creek contaminated- two stealth fracking incidents- you obviously don't live here - the only people buying the oil industry lies are the low information people who think oil will bring jobs or income to the county- anyone with a basic understanding of other communities knows that this is the big oil lie- few jobs & littel income but lots & lots of irreversible damage to the air, water & land of the community

The measure is well-written. Legally sound. That debate is over. Unless you are a temp craigslist hire by the oil industry pr firm trying against all odds to use your limited knowledge & obvious trolling skills to muck up the issue with nonsense.

Yes GEO. And money is pouring into Richmond right now to put into place a mayor who will be looking towards their interests - because right now the city is in the middle of a lawsuit with Chevron- this is what we have to look forward to if we don't stop the oil industry from expanding- they can buy a seat on the board of supervisors & make this county as oil friendly & toxic as Kern

Stan Roden covered all the legal aspects of the measure in his recent opinion letter- anyone who thinks they have more experience with this issue please raise your hand. The oil industry has declared an endless war (their words) upon our community. That includes those who oppose measure P. In Kern County the man who was sucked into the well & boiled to death resulted in a fine of $350. How much is your life worth to the oil industry? Everyone I know who has worked in that industry, in the field, has been treated poorly. They don't give a damn about life. They only care about profits. And they are too big & powerful to be made accountable for the vast number of accidents that are just a part of making a profit (safety measures cost money, fines are cheaper to pay). We watched as the industry sunk the oil that spilled in the gulf with dispersants in 2010 & now that oil is on the ocean floor & the industry denies any part in that. You have to be a fool to want that industry to expand in this county. It astounds me that anyone paying attention to what has happened to other communities across this country & Canada are naive to what could happen here.

49 signed up as a commenter in october- quite a few others here fit the same profile- many were hired from a craigslist add to help with the no on p effort- they don't have much knowledge of this issue or santa barbara county in general & so most of their posts are trollish or cut & pastes from petroleum propaganda
