On February 7th, Californians are coming to Oakland for a march calling for real climate leadership. Gov. Jerry Brown claims to be a climate leader, but his track record of supporting fracking means he’s anything but. While we’re experiencing one of the worst droughts in California history, the state continues to expand water-intensive oil and gas development --including fracking -- and ship in tar sands and oil from the Bakken shale. That’s not climate leadership. On February 7th, Californians from across the state will gather in Oakland, Governor Jerry Brown’s backyard, to demand real climate leadership, now.
