California’s governor takes steps to ban new fracking and halt oil production

California’s governor Gavin Newsom has moved to ban new fracking permits by 2024 and halt all oil extraction by 2045. California produces the third largest amount of oil in the country. California’s Department of Conservation has until 2024 to study the environmental and health benefits of ending oil extraction, and determine how to mitigate the effect on local economies.

And Newsom will be removed from office in a few months, so who cares about his long term "plans?"

Can't you guys in USA just wall off California and relocate all the "refugees" and illegal immigrants there. I mean that's what Clifornians want right? Why not give it to them.

With all of the economic output and profit out of California, they could probably take this hit and still be way above the green.

We definitely need to move away from fossil fuels for a multitude of reasons and so I’ll applaud the Governor for seeking to do that. From the damage they do to air quality, to climate change, and to their sheer inefficiencies they make for a terrible and outdated form of energy production. Truly deserving of the name fossil. With that being said, I wish politicians would take more interest in nuclear energy as the power source to replace fossil fuels. With the sheer amount of energy nuclear can produce, putting oil and coal to shame, and with the way it’s produced, not requiring for massive changes to the energy grid or investment in expensive batteries, it should very obviously be the front runner for the next age of energy production. Heck, it doesn’t even contribute to climate change and it’s amongst the safest forms of energy production we know of. But of course, nuclear has been maligned in the media so there’s unlikely to be a nuclear revolution any day soon.

His time would be better spent getting his stuff packed up. The Kardashians are getting ready to move in.

Great idea. Parts of US (run by dems) could be heading for starvation events in the next few years.
