South Bay L.A. 350 Organizer blasts SCAQMD for Exxon Refinery Climate Killer

From the KPCC coverage:

Among the citizens speaking in opposition to the agreement at Saturday’s meeting was Joe Galliani, founding organizer of the South Bay Los Angeles 350 Climate Action Group. Galliani said that, despite reassurances from ExxonMobil that the refinery is safe, the facility has yet to prove a record of safe and clean operation.

“At what point do you say, ‘No, we’re not going to give you an excuse to increase emissions when we’re already over the safety line,’ Galliani told the hearing board. “I ask you not to give this abatement, and I ask you not to reopen this plant until it’s actually safe for us to breathe the air that they pump out of that production.”
