“It’s a Step in the Right Direction”

(San Francisco, CA) In response to Governor Newson’s executive order banning new fracking permits, climate leader Tom Steyer issued the following statement:

“We have to accelerate our transition to the clean energy economy of the future. Both the natural world and global competition demand our urgency. This means that at every level of government we need to change the rules, fund the research, and create incentives to find new ways of doing things and to stop practices that hurt our planet and our communities. Governor Newsom’s action here is an important step, and we need all of the steps, if we are to equitably transform our country and build towards the future.”
