'A clear danger': oil spill in California city revives calls to cut ties with Chevron

The Guardian

Emergency crews in Richmond, California, are rushing to clean up an estimated 600 gallons of oil that spilled from a Chevron refinery into the San Francisco Bay... “The people of Richmond already carry a disproportionate environmental burden, and spills like this add life-threatening exposure to toxic pollutants,” said Sejal Choksi-Chugh, the executive director of Baykeeper, a non-profit that works to protect San Francisco Bay and its tributaries from pollution, in a statement. “The beaches are closed, the water is contaminated and the whole area smells like a gas station,” she added.
