Today, California joined the Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance as an associate member at COP26.

Glasgow, Scotland In response to California’s entry into the Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance as an associate member, Greenpeace USA Senior Climate Campaigner Caroline Henderson said:

“This year, as California wildfires and heatwaves intensified, Governor Newsom leveled up his commitment to move the state beyond oil. Today, Governor Newsom has joined a global club of leaders willing to usher the world into a fossil-free future. But so long as he continues to greenlight new oil and gas drilling, his goal of phasing California off fossil fuels will remain out of reach. If Governor Newsom is serious about making fossil fuels a part of the past, he must decisively stop approving new oil and gas permits.”
