The View From Here Today
AUGUST 31, 2009
Since 1993 my wife and I have lived in Torrance California, just a half mile from the beautiful beach and the Pacific Ocean. Meanwhile our long term drought, now its its third year with no end in sight, means less available water to fight the fires with. We’ve got a greenhouse gas-spewing Exxon-Mobil refinery just 5 miles from my house here in Torrance and 9 miles up Pacific Coast Highway sits the climate-changing Chevron refinery in El Segundo.
