Climate Justice Advocates Rally for Bold Action July 28, 2022

Common Dreams

“Climate change is a health emergency, but instead of urgent and bold policy measures, the California Air Resource Board and the Governor are sending us their thoughts and prayers. Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) is risky and puts overburdened communities in harms’ way,” said Physicians for Social Responsibility Board Member Dr. Marjaneh Moini. “By supporting CCS, Governor Newsom again fails to prioritize public health and frontline communities, and paves the way for massive subsidies to polluting industries. The Board and the Governor must instead support community-based solutions like rooftop solar with storage and regenerative agriculture. Californians deserve clean air, public health, good paying jobs and a livable future.”
