Re: “The Case Against Chevron

The Case Against Chevron also extends to remote Northwestern Australia where Big Oil is in a fossil fuel frenzy to exploit natural gas reserves off the remote Kimberley coast – just south of the recent Timor Sea oil spill. Last week, Chevron broke ground on its Gorgon LNG facility, sited directly on top of rare flatback sea turtle nesting beaches on tiny, but unique, Barrow Island. Worse, Chevron plans to pump millions of tons of carbon dioxide under the island in an unproven process to contain GHG emissions.
Chevron is also battling with Woodside Petroleum, Shell and Conoco to be the first to construct new LNG operations in Australian Aborginal country with the usual overblown promises of jobs and prosperity. Chevron is so sure of success it has inked multi-billion deals with Japan and China to deliver natural from the region. Western Australian Premier Collin Barnett, a right-wing conservative, has ignored the state’s own environmental agency to green light a new LNG plant near untouched James Price Point adjacent to one of the most important humpback whale calving and feeding grounds in the world. Dozens more projects are on the books to industrialize the mostly wild, red rock desert coastline carved by aqua-blue ocean waters and sandy coves.
While Australia is not considered “third world,” Chevron’s irresponsible actions toward the environment and the community is straight out of its corporate colonial playbook. I hope the big U. S. groups campaigning against Chevron will join me and Australian activists in appending these environmental and community outrages to the Case Against Chevron.
