Phone Survey Regarding Oil Trucking
By an edhat reader
I just received a call from Promark Research (that name showed on my phone). They are hired surveyors; please don't abuse the caller if you actually answer the phone, which I rarely do. The caller/employee knows nothing; they're just reading from a script.
Promark has been hired to do a survey regarding ExxonMobile's plan to truck oil from platforms Hondo, Harmony, and Heritage to Santa Maria. This is necessary due to the shutdown of the Plains Pipeline and Las Flores Canyon facility. More information available here.
It is a long survey, given by a live person. I urge you to share your opinions, whatever they are. It will play a role in what happens next. I'm glad I did, it clarified my hypocrisies. I do greatly fear up to 70 trucks a day, given what happens to Ventura, SB and SLO counties, and may ripple through California, when there is a freeway shutdown. As a politically active person, I enjoyed participating. I also appreciated being forced to evaluate my own hypocrisies and fuzzy thinking.
Please try to participate; to give your opinion. It's almost like voting. And please do that too!
