Don't Let Big Oil Escape California's Climate Law
Big oil is mounting an attack on California's landmark climate pollution reduction rules, and we need your help to fight back!
The oil industry is trying to weaken and delay implementation of California's Global Warming Solutions Act, AB 32. Their powerful lobbyists have recruited an assemblymember to author AB 69, which would allow oil companies to escape from complying with pollution reductions.
Since 2006, AB 32 has improved public health by reducing greenhouse gas emissions that force extreme heat events that increase pollution-triggered asthma and breathing difficulty.
