Governor Newsom is taking on Big Oil in a big way. Recently, he announced that California is suing five of the largest oil corporations in the world — Exxon, Shell, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, and BP — as well as the American Petroleum Institute, for their decades of climate deception. This lawsuit is huge not only because California is now the largest global economy pursuing litigation against Big Oil, but also because we are the first oil-producing state to pursue such charges.

But that’s exactly the problem: California still produces millions of barrels of oil every year. California’s oil industry has fueled the climate crisis and poisoned communities near drilling sites for far too long. In addition to holding oil corporations accountable for their past harms through his landmark lawsuit, we also need Governor Newsom to step in and stop oil and gas pollution today.

The governor has the power to rein corporate polluters and put a stop to oil and gas drilling across California. Tell Governor Newsom to stop issuing permits for oil and gas extraction using the form below!
