Countdown to COP26 Kicks Off On Capitol Steps

Sacramento, CAToday, environment and public health advocates will unite to bring the climate crisis to the steps of the Capitol Building in Sacramento with a visually-driven demonstration. The $15 billion dollar climate package announced by Governor Newsom last week failed to address the fossil fuel extraction and production happening in communities across the state. The public health cost of California’s rapidly worsening climate crisis continues and advocates are urging Gov. Newsom to end the permitting of oil extraction.

Californians are witnessing firsthand the “code red” climate emergency that U.N. scientists warned of earlier this summer. Yet, the continued extraction and burning of California oil locks us into climate damage that sets the stage for more historic fires and pollutes the air we breathe every day.

The recall is over. Our climate fight isn’t.
