PHASE OUT FOSSIL FUELS NOW —Some success, more needed!
SITUATION: After years of advocacy from environmental justice frontline leaders and allies (including OWL), Governor Newsom announced a draft rule to impose a 3200-foot setback for new oil and gas operations near sensitive receptors, like homes and schools.
This is great news for California’s children and frontline communities.
However, this rule must apply to ALL new wells, not just those “with new surface locations” and the state must also protect the millions of residents living near existing wells.
ACTION: After taking a moment to celebrate this forward progress, please join Mothers Out Front CA in calling on Governor Newsom to do more.
Help us flood his office with calls!
ACTION: Urge Governor Newsom to finalize a rule that ends ALL neighborhood drilling and all permitting for fossil fuels.
