CULVER CITY – “This proposal is worse than a lump of coal on Christmas Eve and far worse for climate change,” stated Molly Basler, a Climate Reality Leader trained by Al Gore and Chair of the Wetlands Committee for Climate Reality Project’s Los Angeles Chapter. “Anyone supporting this proposed project is supporting the addition of new fossil fuel infrastructure being added to the gas storage field beneath the Ballona Wetlands.”

“This continued turning of our back on the need to close fossil fuel operations like this — especially when it has been shown that this one provides less than 1% of the gas needs for the state — is unacceptable, given the climate crisis we face. Plus, the removal of thousands of trees, acres of grasslands and wetlands – currently storing carbon – is the opposite of what we need to do to curb climate change impacts,” continued Basler.
