by Richmond resident Marilynne Mellander,
I attended last night’s (July 10) 2nd hearing on certification of the Chevron EIR.
The RPA members controlling the Planning Commission repeatedly asked the same inane questions to Chevron reps, their environmental allies (who were given a complete row of front row sets marked “speaker”), and EIR consultant Hernandez.
Once Commish Langlois moved to certify the EIR, I knew something was up, and boy was I right.
She added scores of extra incredibly expensive caveats to the EIR making the “certification” a joke. It was nothing more than a shakedown of Chevron – Pay to Play!
I hope Chevron doesn’t cowtow to this abusive Richmond bureaucracy.
It is really obvious that the RPA crowd won’t be satisfied until Chevron is shut down completely.
Their constant mantra that we must move away from a petroleum based energy is very telling….
