Chevron’s proposal (“Torrey Pines Research Park Approved,” April 13) to skim off 2 million cubic yards of soil from the tops of hills and relocate it in canyons to build offices to accommodate thousands of employees will generate 16,000 additional auto trips daily, disturb the habitat of endangered birds and destroy acres of valuable coastal sage scrub. All of this to take place in an already heavily compacted and trafficked area.
Chevron’s well-publicized advertising that it protects tiny blue butterflies, eagles and fish fails to mention preserving the well-being of humans. What happened to “Do people really care--PEOPLE DO”?
