The Governor warns that contaminated natural gas contains chemicals that are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birthdefects and reproductive harm.

The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, commonly referred to as Proposition 65, requires the Governor to publish a list of chemicals "known to the State to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm " It also requires California businesses to warn the public quarterly of potential exposures to these chemicals which result from their operations.



Large amounts of polychlorinated biphenlys (PCBs) have been found in gas utility pipes across the nation.

Unlike asbestos or cigarettes - natural gas invades every part of our lives without our permission. From providing us with comfortable heat, to delivering delicious cooked food and protecting us from the elements of nature's cold fury, to drying our undergarments so we can feel warm and fuzzy. Gas-waste infects us at every level of our lives.
