The Governor’s Executive Order: September 23, 2020
We are grateful to Governor Newsom for putting the state on course for reducing warming pollutants from transportation, the largest greenhouse gas emissions sector in California, the nation’s largest car market. We also thank the governor for ordering by next July a just transition plan and its “expeditious” implementation.
But science demands more aggressive actions be taken sooner for a climate-safe future and the health of our communities, especially frontline lower-income communities and communities of color. It’s time to immediately halt any new gas and oil drilling permits, and to start the phase-out of fossil fuel production and exports. We must accelerate existing timelines to achieve net negative emissions and the start of drawdown by 2030.
