Our next meeting will be Tuesday, November 14, at 7pm, held on Zoom.
Carbon Dumping may be coming to the Bay Area, especially refinery communities. If you aren’t sure what that is, you are not alone. Another name for it is Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). That sounds good at first glance – who doesn’t want to get rid of the CO2 that is driving climate chaos?
But did you know it has never worked? Did you know “permanent storage” may be for as little as 50 years? Did you know that a leak can be FATAL? YIKES! This is where national policy to promote Carbon Capture and local interests collide.
Come find out more about the proposals in California, including the proposed Montezuma Carbon Project along the Carquinez Strait. Victoria Bogdan Tejeda, a Staff Attorney at the Climate Law Institute, Center for Biological Diversity, will be speaking at our next meeting and filling us in on these new threats. Please invite your friends.
Victoria Bogdan Tejeda (she/her) (pictured right) is a Staff Attorney with the Center for Biological Diversity’s Climate Law Institute, where she fights false climate solutions like carbon capture and storage, as well as polluting industries such as petrochemicals and biomass energy. Prior to joining the Center, she worked as an Associate Attorney with Earthjustice. There, her role included litigating toxic chemical regulations and assisting overburdened communities in advancing environmental justice. She holds a law degree from U.C. Davis School of Law.
