Los Angeles, CA--Today, the Liberty Hill Foundation released its Drilling Down report, which details the experiences of Los Angeles area residents who live close to oil extraction operations. Los Angeles is home to the nation’s largest urban oil field and oil production sites are known to emit toxic chemicals into the surrounding air, produce a steady stream of noise and heavy truck traffic, and leave neighbors with little information about activities conducted next door to homes and schools. Residents of the communities featured in the report – many of which already disproportionately suffer from exposure to environmental pollutants – describe health ailments including nosebleeds, nausea, respiratory illness and dizziness that they argue are a direct result of industrial oil development taking place in residential neighborhoods.

this is very interesting information. horrible how oil production affects human health. It’s even hard to believe that oil wells are being drilled in the city and people are suffering so much from it. I support the organization STAND-L.A. which cares about the environment and human health.

Most of the drilling in Los Angeles takes place in communities that already suffer from the aggregate burdens of poverty, inadequate health care access and poor air quality. Thank you for making this such an awesome post!
