      It is far more important to save our rich and diverse mammal marine life than it is to know when the next earthquake or tsunami is coming

      Other testing methods would allow researchers to collect seismic data that won't kill as much marine life. Unfortunately, these safer methods do not reveal as much about potential oil deposits, which is what this testing is really all about. PG&E would love to know more about the locations of untapped oil reserves along our protected coastline off the shore of Morro Bay, California. They are willing to collapse untold numbers of protected species and destroy the marine as well as the human economy in our beautiful section of California's Central Coast to score this information before their domestic and international competitors.

      Please help us refocus the seismic testing on earthquake features and faults and away from blasting a deafening 250 DB into the ocean every 15 seconds for 40+ days in a row. After the 40+ years ago oil spill in Santa Barbara, this biologically-rich and financially-meaningful section of California was protected from oil drilling. Even though drilling isn't even permitted in this area—which overlaps with several official Marine Protected Areas and migration routes and habitat for endangered and threatened species—PG&E is willing to kill and destroy so much of our beautiful, protected coast to collect this data. Hell, they don’t live here: why would they care what happened to the fishing industry, the hospitality businesses, and so many others who live here for this very ocean this corporation with a poor track record of keeping citizens near their operations safe?

      But we DO live here and ask respectfully for your consideration. This is not the kind of corporate behavior we need: destroy our world now for their prospective future. Please help us stop this terrible planned acoustic seismic testing. Thank you and good luck in November.
