"We applaud the call for an inter-agency process to coordinate the phasedown of oil refining and extraction in California. However, the plan still paves the way for billions in subsidies for oil and gas executives by using carbon capture schemes to lock in refineries, dirty gas power plants, and polluting bioenergy and hydrogen facilities." - Mabel Tsang, CEJA Political Dir.
This is the final push: join us to urge Governor Newsom and the state air and climate regulator to prioritize a fossil fuel phaseout and no CCUS in the state climate plan.
We are writing on behalf of 56 organizations and researchers to request an investigation of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory advocacy effort promoting carbon capture to California regulators, legislators, schools, and community groups, and the funding arrangement for that campaign.
