Add your name today to demand Governor Newsom say no to fossil fuels. California will continue to burn if we do not take drastic steps now.
Together with the Last Chance Alliance,we’re calling on Governor Newsom to:
Stop all new fossil fuel projects by issuing no new drilling permits
Phase out existing drilling with a just and equitable transition plan for workers and the communities most impacted
Create a 2500-foot health and safety buffer zone between fossil-fuel infrastructure and homes, schools, and other sensitive areas
Newsom has the power to protect our communities and listen to the science, but he’s not using it – and he won’t unless we fight for it.
Thank You for Signing Up!

Where’s the update on your actions to address fossil fuels as the root cause of these fires, @Gavin Newsom?
Throughout 2020, Gov Newsom did nothing but add fuel to the flames by permitting over 1,500 new oil & gas permits. It’s time to phase out fossil fuels. #WalkBackTheFrack
In a defining decade for climate action, it’s up to @CAGovernor to ensure that our future doesn’t look like what we’re experiencing now: wildfires, heatwaves, lightning, blackouts.
@GavinNewsom: stop fueling the #CAfires by committing to NO NEW FOSSIL FUELS. #WalkBackTheFrack
.@GavinNewsom must address the root causes of the climate crisis — not just the symptoms.To stop the worst impacts of the fossil-fueled climate crisis, you must phase out fossil fuels. Full stop.
As #CAFires blaze, allow us to review @GavinNewsom’s climate record:
🛢️Issued 1,500 oil & gas permits in 2020
🏠Allows oil drilling near homes, schools, healthcare facilities
🤑Lets Big Oil continue to pollute business-as-usual during #COVID19
.@GavinNewsom: By being complicit in Big Oil’s business model of extraction & pollution, you fuel the flames of climate crisis.
Every permit you issue to Big Oil today is a heatwave, a thunderstorm, a wildfire, a mudslide tomorrow.
Phase out fossil fuels. #WalkBackTheFrack
