@allan Interesting...local climate activists are discussing pressuring my city council for the same thing, and it feels kind of like low-hanging fruit, when we should be poking something a bit bigger? The city already is way ahead of the crowd, while surrounding towns much less so, and I don't think declaring the emergency would dismantle the pipeline going through the city or stop the freight trains from carrying oil right thru my backyard...

@allan I dunno, I guess I'm feeling frustrated, and don't know how to take meaningful actions on the tank farms in my city without endangering my public service job, and my husband isn't currently working much, so I don't want to jeopardize it. *sigh* Sorry to use your post as an outlet.
