Can California become the first major economy to go completely fossil free?
Join community members and movement leaders to discuss how California can be a global model for the transition from a major oil-producer to a 100% renewable energy economy based on equity and justice. From wildfires, droughts, oil spills, refinery and pipeline explosions, and deadly pollution – Californians already know how serious the climate crisis is, and have felt its impacts firsthand. The fossil fuel era is ending, and this is our opportunity to lead a global transition that protects our health, our environment, and our communities.
As Governor Jerry Brown hosts the Global Climate Action Summit this September 12-14 in San Francisco, we must be be clear about what real climate leadership looks like, and how California can lead the way on building a fossil free economy based on sustainability and justice.
